June 17, 2024: Sixty-two percent (62%) of RMG-described politically active elites say that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is more important than keeping the price of cars low enough that families can afford them. A Scott Rasmussen national survey conducted by RMG Research found that 38% believe keeping cars affordable for families is more important.

Among all voters, those numbers are almost reversed. Fifty-seven percent (57%) say that keeping cars affordable for families is more important, while 38% say it is more important to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Methodology

This survey of 1,500 elite voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on May 1-6. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc.

Elites were defined as having a postgraduate degree, having a household income of more than $150,000 annually, and living in a ZIP code with more than 10,000 people per square mile. Approximately 1% of the total U.S. population meets these criteria. The politically active elites are those elites who talk politics on a daily basis.

Note: Scott Rasmussen is the president of RMG Research, Inc. He hosts "The Scott Rasmussen Show" on Merit Street Media Sunday mornings at 10 Eastern.
