Most Americans still back nuclear power, see future in solar – poll ― RT USA

Americans are increasingly looking to solar and wind energy for the future, but most of them still support nuclear energy, a new Gallup poll shows. Overall support for oil and natural gas exploration has dropped, due to divided opinions on fracking.

Based on the survey, conducted in early March by Gallup, 51 percent of Americans support nuclear energy, while 43 percent are opposed. This is a slight drop from the last poll in 2013, when 53 percent were in favor of atomic power.
