Voters say U.S. should stay in the Paris accord — survey

Seven in 10 registered voters say the United States should remain a participant in the international agreement to limit climate change, according to the survey, which polled 1,061 people in the days after the Nov. 8 presidential election. The survey also found that two-thirds of registered voters want the United States to cut its greenhouse gas emissions, regardless of what other countries choose to do.

People surveyed in the spring supported Paris when they last asked the question, said Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. And they continue to support the climate accords after the election, he said.
