A new Rasmussen Report national poll shows that 88 percent of both Democrat and Republican likely voters support legislation that would improve the nation’s infrastructure. The poll was conducted for the American Road and Transportation Builders and the American Public Transit Association. The GCA plays an active leadership role in both organizations.
The poll also provided insights on why support for a broad infrastructure initiative is so strong. Ninety-six percent of those surveyed agreed “improving infrastructure like our roads, bridges, public transit, water systems and the power grid” is either “very important” (62 and 64 percent) or “somewhat important” (34 and 32 percent) to both “future U.S. economic growth” and “the quality of life of our children and grandchildren.”
