One year before Election Day, 71 percent of voters say they are more likely to support a candidate who supports producing more oil and natural gas, (64 percent of Democrats and 85 percent of Republicans), according to a telephone poll among registered voters conducted for API by Harris Poll.

“Pro-energy policies are a clear winner because likely voters from both parties recognize its key role in job creation and economic growth,” said API President and CEO Jack Gerard. “Voters say they support candidates who stand behind pro-development, all-of-the-above energy policies. The results of our poll provide a lesson for candidates running in 2016: pro-energy policies win.”

Eighty-six percent of voters recognize that increased production of domestic oil and natural gas resources could lead to more U.S. jobs, and 84 percent recognize it could stimulate our economy.
