support for the Keystone XL pipeline but that's down 16-points from the 68% approval we gave it in April. Opposition to the pipeline during that interval shot up 40%.
Nik Nanos, president of Nanos Research and Global Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, told Bloomberg he thinks the poll’s results could make the Canadian government concerned for the future of the project.
“This has implications for the anti-Keystone movement in both countries,” he said.
The new poll brings the Canadian support level on par with the most recent U.S. polls on Keystone XL. A December Bloomberg National Poll found 56 percent of American respondents supported the project, but that 58 percent also supported requirements that Canada reduced carbon dioxide emissions of the project.
