INDIANAPOLIS – According to a new survey, a majority of Republicans, Independents and Democrats agree they'd like Congress to work on an energy policy that supports renewable energy, protects public health and promotes energy independence.

The survey was commissioned by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Civil Society Institute and conducted by ORC International, a global market research firm.

Kerwin Olson, executive director of the Citizens Action Coalition, says the poll shows the political divide over energy issues is largely a myth.

"Americans want clean energy. Americans want affordable energy, and it's the influence of the moneyed interests of utility and energy lobbyists that is creating this gridlock, that simply does not reflect the will of the American people."

Olson notes that consumer costs for energy are having an impact on public opinion.

"A lot of it has to do with prices at the pump, prices on their monthly utility bills that are ever-increasing. And Americans just want politicians to stop bickering and arguing, and create energy policy that will provide Americans with clean and affordable energy."

The survey shows two-thirds of Americans think political leaders should be helping to steer the U.S. toward cleaner energy sources, he adds.

"Renewable energy and energy efficiency are the investments that create far more jobs, provide cleaner energy and provide affordable energy to the public - which we believe is an essential human service, and a right."

The survey, taken in March, sampled 506 men and 513 women in private households across the country. See the results on the Civil Society Institute website.
