Wonder if we can make politics more about policy & less about fundraising & campaigning. Bet we'd get some great new faces in both parties.

In one year, Americans concerned about climate change decreased from 71% to 64%. And those who say it's "mostly due to natural forces" went from 5% to 20%.

The upcoming UT Energy Poll release - post-election - will be a doozy...

Where is it most important for the US government to spend your tax dollars? Trump voters prioritize military spending while Clinton voters are more likely to say education or environment. Social security is valued by both. The full Fall 2016 UT Energy Poll is coming out soon...
