Most in Michigan favor protecting environment even at economic expense

EAST LANSING, MI — In a post-election poll, Michiganders were asked a tough question about how much they really value environmental protections. The question, posed to 1,000 residents over 18 by researchers with Michigan State University and the online market research firm YouGov, was this: Which of these statements comes closer to your view, even if neither is exactly right? “Economic growth should be given priority, even if the environment suffers to some extent.” Or: “Protection of the environment should be given priority, even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”
