Majority Back Keystone XL But Opposition Growing

A new USA Today poll finds a slight majority of Americans favor the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline that President Obama is expected to approve or reject this year.  

“About 56% say they favor the northern leg of the billion-dollar, Canada-to-U.S. project and 41% oppose it… More men (60%) than women (53%) support the 1,179-mile pipeline extension, which would carry heavy tar sands from Alberta through Montana and South Dakota to Steele City, Neb. Support was consistent regardless of education level but much stronger among self-described conservatives than liberals, a slight majority of whom oppose it.”
