Climate political upside

If I were a political operative strategizing for a national campaign, I'd be very interested in this:
·      A majority of all registered voters (55%) say they will consider candidates’ views on global warming when deciding how to vote.
·      Among these climate change issue voters, large majorities believe global warming is happening and support action by the U.S. to reduce global warming, even if it has economic costs.
·      Independents lean toward “climate action” and look more like Democrats than Republicans on the issue.
·      A pro-climate action position wins votes among Democrats and Independents, and has little negative impact with Republican voters.
·      Policies to reduce America’s dependence on fossil fuels and promote renewable energy are favored by a majority of registered voters across party lines.
