A Bite From the Grist: Conservatives Most Likely to Favour BP

Posted on June 5, 2010


The Grist breaks down a new poll from Rasmussen about attitudes towards BP in the light of BP Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.  They write:

On BP favorability, a few key statistics stick out

  • Conservatives are four times more likely to view BP favorably as liberals are
  • Republicans are more than twice as likely to view BP favorably as Democrats are
  • Whites are nearly twice as likely to view BP favorably as blacks are

Good information to know if  you are at all interested in curbing oil company behaviour in the long run.  Conservatives and Republicans ( just as everyone expected) will not be inclined to protect the planet.

Just so you know.
