A recent Rasmussen poll says 56% of residents don’t see any major environmental damage from the Gulf Oil Spill.
We want your opinion.
It’s been two years now since the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, and most voters now believe there will be little, if any, long-term environmental damage from the disaster.
Here are photos taken during the gulf oil spill.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 10% of Likely U.S. Voters still believe there will be devastating long-term environmental impact from the oil spill, while 29% more predict that the impact will be major. But 56% don’t see the long-term impact as nearly that severe, including 33% who say the environmental impact will be modest, 15% who think it will be minor and eight percent (8%) who believe there will be no lasting impact.

The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on April 30-May 1, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
