Americans are divided on going electric for their transportation needs. One recent study found the country split into thirds, with one-third ready to go electric, one-third still unsure, and one-third set against it. The breakdown often mirrors political lines.
The Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center reports that, in 2021, California led the nation in EV registrations. But deep-red Florida and Texas took second and third place. A recent poll found that “Tesla’s net favorability among self-described Democrats in the U.S. fell to an average of 10.4% this month through Nov. 27, down from an average of 24.8% in October. It rose to 26.5% from 20% among self-described Republicans during the same period.”
