Poll: Most Californians Oppose Additional Nuclear Plants

SACRAMENTO (AP) — A Field Poll finds voter support dwindling for the building of more nuclear power plants in California, but a majority believes the state’s existing plants are safe.

The survey released Wednesday shows only 38 percent of registered voters agreed that more nuclear plants should be built in the state, while 58 percent disagreed. Last year, 48 percent supported building more such plants and 44 percent were opposed.

The poll also finds that 53 percent of registered voters oppose allowing oil companies to drill more oil and gas wells in state tidelands along the California coast, while 43 percent believe they should be allowed to drill.

The telephone survey of 472 registered voters was conducted June 3 through June 13 and has a margin of sampling error of 4.6 percentage points.

    These are the same people that elected Jerry Brown and installed a Democrat majority. We can all see the wisdom of their choices.

      Thank the left wingers, they would rather pay high prices rather than fix the problem. Ignorance is so evident here. 2012 will be the start of the new Administration.

    Isn’t their pending legislation to rename California to Caliloonia?
