According to a new survey a majority of Americans think states should pursue renewable energy policies in the absence of federal mandates.

The survey, from the Gerald R. Ford School for Public Policy, found that 66 percent of Americans think states should take the lead to combat global warming.

Barry Rabe helped conduct the survey. He says they polled people before President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.
