Results of SurveyUSA Mkt Research Study #21120
 
Voters Want Full Disclosure about Who Owns Keystone Pipeline Oil and Where It's Headed:

SurveyUSA conducted 10 separate, identical, simultaneous polls on the Keystone XL Pipeline, including one nationwide poll and 9 polls in 9 states for NextGen Climate Action. Results of the polls are here:

* USA
* Alabama
* Florida
* Iowa
* Louisiana
* Michigan
* New Hampshire
* North Carolina
* Ohio
* South Carolina

Across geographies, voters are concerned about the possibility that oil flowing through the Keystone XL Pipeline may not remain in America, and worry that foreign oil companies, some with connections to foreign governments, may have a say about where Keystone XL Pipeline oil ultimately ends up. Voters are concerned about who owns the tar sands where the oil originates, are concerned about whether a foreign or domestic entity is responsible for the maintenance of the Pipeline as is crosses American soil, and are concerned about how much of the oil stays in America once it is refined on America's Gulf Coast. Voters are impatient with Senators who may have been persuaded to vote for the Pipeline by lobbyists with foreign ties. And voters are suspect of a US State Department study which may have had a faulty premise as its underpinning. Just as striking is how these findings cut across party lines. Consensus on key Pipeline policy is shared by liberals and conservatives, Republicans and Democrats, the less educated and the more educated, the less affluent and the more affluent.

Cell-phone respondents and home-phone respondents included in these 10 Separate Public Opinion Polls on the Keystone XL Pipeline. SurveyUSA interviewed a total of 5,500 USA registered voters 02/10/14 through 02/11/14, as follows: 1,000 registered voters from a nationally representative sample and 500 registered voters from each of the following 9 states: Alabama, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Louisiana, Iowa, and New Hampshire. Respondents reachable on a home telephone were interviewed on their home telephone in the recorded voice of a professional announcer. Respondents not reachable on a home telephone were shown a questionnaire on their smartphone, tablet or other electronic device.

6Businesses connected to the Chinese government have invested $30 billion dollars in the tar sands of Canada, which is where the oil for the Keystone XL Pipeline will originate. Does this investment, backed by the Chinese government, make it more likely? Less likely? Or just as likely? ... That the oil from the Pipeline will end up in China?

14Regardless of whether you support or oppose building of the Keystone XL Pipeline, should Congress make sure it knows where the oil from the Pipeline will end up?

15The Canadian oil company that is building the Pipeline has refused to commit to the US government that Pipeline oil will stay in the United States. Before a final decision is made on whether to approve the Pipeline, do you think this Canadian oil company should be required to make clear where oil from the Pipeline will end up?

16The US State Department has just released a report favorable to the Pipeline. A Canadian news story says that Canadian officials knew long ago that the US State Department's report would be favorable. Should there be an investigation into whether the US State Department had inappropriate communications with foreign interests?

17Some Canadian oil executives say they cannot economically justify extracting oil from the Canadian tar sands without the Keystone XL Pipeline. The US State department study, which was just released, did not take this into account. The State Department only considered the scenario in which oil would be shipped with or without a Pipeline. Should the US State Department study have taken into account the fact that some Canadian oil executives say they must have the Keystone XL Pipeline in order to justify the cost of extracting oil from the tar sands?

19During the first year of its operation, one portion of the Keystone XL Pipeline had 33 separate oil spills. Does this make you more likely to support the Pipeline? Less likely to support the Pipeline? Or does it make no difference?

17Some Canadian oil executives say they cannot economically justify extracting oil from the Canadian tar sands without the Keystone XL Pipeline. The US State department study, which was just released, did not take this into account. The State Department only considered the scenario in which oil would be shipped with or without a Pipeline. Should the US State Department study have taken into account the fact that some Canadian oil executives say they must have the Keystone XL Pipeline in order to justify the cost of extracting oil from the tar sands?

18If a Pipeline running through the United States is owned by foreign investors, do you think the Pipeline will be maintained as carefully as if the Pipeline was owned by Americans?
