Trump Voters in Midwest States Losing Faith in Administration’s Commitment to Renewable Fuels

Dan Energy, Industry News Release

New polling shows that voters across three Midwestern states are disappointed with Trump Administration decisions regarding biofuels.

trumpReleased by the National Biodiesel Board this week, a survey of voters in Iowa, Missouri and Minnesota overwhelmingly say they support federal policies to encourage growth in biodiesel and renewable fuels use.

Their support cut across party lines, with more than two-thirds of Republicans and nearly three-quarters of Independents saying they support U.S. efforts to boost the expansion of the biodiesel industry. In total, 73 percent of voters agreed. A substantial majority of voters in those states, including 63 percent of Independents, say EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s efforts to lower demand for biofuels does not reflect the President’s promise to support renewable fuels and the RFS. More than 80 percent of Republican voters in the survey said it was important to them that President Trump keep his promise to defend the RFS.
