    Democrats' Promise to End Fracking Isn't Going Over Well With Voters in Key States ..

    During a CNN town hall last week on "climate change," 2020 Democrat candidates vowed to ban all fracking in the United States. In addition, candidates like Senator Elizabeth Warren vowed to stop additional oil exploration.


    But according to new polling, voters are alarmed by the position. Here's what Rasmussen Reports asked in a recent survey:


    And the results:


    More importantly, fracking bans affect states Democrats need to win and the voters there are paying close attention. From AP:


    During the first presidential debates in June, which were held in America's auto capitol of Detroit, Democrats vowed to ban cars to combat climate change. Will they vow to ban fracking in Houston during the third round of debates tonight? Count on it.....snip~

    According to this map, most states either have banned fracking, put a moratorium on it, or can't. I think I counted 9 that frack, all red states.

    Democrats step on shaky political ground with fracking bans.....


    An all-out prohibition on the controversial natural gas extraction process — backed by Sens. Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren — has been well received by the liberal and climate-focused voters closely watching the primary. But the proposal also threatens to antagonize unions and voters in areas that depend on oil and gas for jobs.


    That opposition may be fiercest in some of the states Democrats care about most. Banning fracking could have a dramatic impact on the economy in Pennsylvania, a state Democrats consider a must-win in their pursuit of the White House. It could also jeopardize the party’s hold on Colorado, a swing state trending its way, not to mention Democrats’ dreams of winning statewide in Texas, the headquarters of the energy industry and home to 137,000 natural gas wells.


    The candidates’ support for a ban is one of the clearest examples of the party’s move to the left in its 2020 primary. Only a few years ago, President Barack Obama celebrated the benefits of fracking — welcoming the energy independence and lower costs that come from an increase in domestic production. To address environmental concerns, his administration focused on tighter regulation of fracking on federal land but largely steered clear of the state-level battles over whether the practice was dangerous, dirty or accelerating climate change by encouraging dependence on fossil fuels. Even most environmental groups have advocated for regulation, not an all-out ban.


    At the same time, jobs created by fracking have been a boost to some labor unions. The activity helps the economy and lowers energy costs. A study in 2015 from the nonpartisan Brookings Institution found that households gained $200 from fracking just from lower gas prices alone.


    Meanwhile, the state’s fracking boom has led to the construction of a massive energy plant northwest of the city that has created thousands of construction jobs and was the site of a rally by President Donald Trump last month. The president touted the economic benefits of fracking, which have extended not just to Pennsylvania but also to neighboring West Virginia and Ohio.


    Mikus said it’s hard to predict the outcome of a Pennsylvania election in which the Democrat wants to end fracking because no Democratic nominee has ever run statewide with that platform before. Democrats who have called for fracking bans have lost statewide primaries.


    In Colorado, Democrats won a major battle to rein in fracking after Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, an ex-petroleum geologist, left office. Its new Democratic governor, Jared Polis, has helped finance efforts to fight fracking and complained about an energy company building a well next to land he owns in northern Colorado. After Democrats took over the state legislature in November, they pushed through a bill that allows local governments to regulate energy exploration within their boundaries......snip~

    Colorado and Pennsylvania haven't banned fracking.

    The Demos didn't want to mention this to much with their debate last night.

    So basically we support China and Iran and increase gas prices until then? Fascinating.

    Let me know when you can fly coast to coast on electricity.

    How nice. Most of those states don't have oil.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Man I think you need to read your own post and look a bit closer at your source.....

    "Fracking now occurs in 21 states and could soon begin in 5 more". Only 2 states that have potential Nat Gas reserves ban Fracking.......
