Americans Strongly Support Space Exploration

The source of the poll may have some bias on the subject, but I have to say that I also share that bias too:

New Gallup Poll Reveals Americans Continue to Strongly Support Space Exploration

“A new Gallup Poll shows more than two- thirds of respondents support the nation’s stepping-stone approach to space exploration, which includes flying the space shuttle to complete the International Space Station, building a replacement vehicle for the space shuttle, returning humans to the moon, and exploring Mars and points beyond. (Respondents support this approach if NASA’s budget does not exceed 1 percent of the federal budget.)

The most recent poll, conducted in August, is the last in a three-part series of polls commissioned by the Coalition for Space Exploration in an effort to better understand the extent of support and public attitudes toward America’s space program. The first polls were conducted in June of 2005 and March of 2006.”
