March 10, 2023: Forty-two percent (42%) of voters say they would be willing to pay $100 or more per year in taxes and higher costs in order to reduce climate change. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that this includes 8% who would be willing to pay whatever it takes and 5% who would be willing to pay $1,000 or more.
The survey also found that 78% say it is important to fight climate change, including 51% who say it is very important.
The survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on February 23-24, 2023. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of registered voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.1 percentage points.
