The Pew Research Center did a poll on the most important issues to the public. Turns out that, with the exception of Al Gore, global warming is not a major issue with the public.
In fact it ranked 20th, better known as dead last. Economy, jobs, and energy all rank much higher, all in the top six.
Polls can be notoriously inaccurate and an oversimplification of what the public really wants. With this said, you have to wonder how well the public will receive the inevitable push by Obama and Congress to pass legislation that will cause damage to the economy, cost jobs, and make energy either harder to obtain or considerably more costly. Only time will tell.
