 Survey says: Most favor U.S. nuclear power now & in the future

A majority of Americans support nuclear energy and say it will be important for the future, a survey from Bisconti Research Inc. says.
According to the survey, 68 percent of those surveyed said they favor the use of nuclear for power generation in the U.S., compared to 63 percent in a similar survey conducted in 2014. In the Midwest, 76 percent favor nuclear, along with 71 percent of those in the South. In addition, 78 percent of respondents say nuclear is important in meeting future electricity needs, while 19 percent feel it will not be important. A majority of respondents, 79 percent, also agree that U.S. nuclear power plants are safe and secure, compared to 70 percent last year.
Bisconti Research conducted the survey with Quest Global Research for the Nuclear Energy Institute from Feb. 18 through March 1.
