FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Austin, TX—June 8, 2021) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018 and 2020—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted May 17th thru May 19th of 1,000 or more likely 2022 election voters.
“The Colonial Pipeline cybersecurity hack highlights how critical pipelines are to keeping America moving. Unbelievably, the Biden Administration supports shutting pipelines down—making our country less energy independent and less secure—while simultaneously assuring Americans they’re going to keep the gas flowing, and despite the fact that pipelines are the most environmentally sensitive and carbon neutral way to transport oil,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “Biden’s energy insanity directly conflicts with voters, who are unabashedly pro-pipeline. This is another example of how the Biden Administration is at odds with the majority of Americans, who are increasingly thinking the 2022 election can’t come soon enough.”
