Big boost for Obama as poll reveals big majority of undecided voters care about climate change

President Obama's decision to highlight his support for greater action to tackle climate change during this autumn's election campaign looks to have been vindicated, after a new poll revealed a clear majority of undecided voters want the US government to take more ambitious steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The poll from Yale and George Mason Universities surveyed 1,061 US adults and found that undecided voters' attitude towards climate change and energy policy was much closer to that of declared Obama voters than Romney voters. Significantly, 55 per cent of undecided respondents also said that global warming was an important issue that was likely to influence their eventual vote.
