Climate Activism: Beliefs, Attitudes, and Behaviors – November 2019


Reading Notes

  • References to Republicans, Democrats, and Independents include only registered voters. References to Republicans and Democrats include registered voters who initially identify as either a Republican or Democrat, as well as those who do not initially identify as a Republican or Democrat but who say they “are closer to” one of those parties (i.e., “leaners”) in a follow-up question. The category “Independents” does not include any of these “leaners.”
  • In data tables, bases specified are unweighted, but percentages are weighted.
  • For tabulation purposes, percentage points are rounded to the nearest whole number. As a result, percentages in a given chart may total slightly higher or lower than 100%. Summed response categories (e.g., “strongly support” + “somewhat support”) are rounded after sums are calculated (e.g., 25.3% + 25.3% = 50.6%, which, after rounding, would be reported as 25% + 25% = 51%).
  • Weighted percentages among registered voters of each of the groups discussed in this report:
    • Democrats (total) including leaners: 47%
      • Liberal Democrats: 25%
      • Moderate/Conservative Democrats: 22%
        • (Moderate Democrats: 19%; Conservative Democrats: 3%)
    • Independents excluding leaners: 10%
    • Republicans (total) including leaners: 38%
      • Liberal/Moderate Republicans: 13%
        • (Liberal Republicans: 2%; Moderate Republicans: 11%)
      • Conservative Republicans: 25%
    • No party/Not interested in politics/No response: 6%
