Most people, including a majority of Democrats, are likely to vote for a candidate who is against green energy regulations on appliances such as stoves and dishwashers — a sign that the Biden administration’s climate policies may be missing the mark with both parties.

When asked how likely they would support a candidate who would revoke those regulations, 56% of respondents said they were “more likely” to support such a candidate. When broken down by party, 54% of Democrats and 48% of liberals joined 61% of Republicans and 52% of independents.
