A recent Rasmussen Reports* national survey of 1,000 likely voters reveals that close to 70% agree with Senator McCain that the ban on offshore drilling should be lifted to ease the price of oil.
Leading Democrats are still trying to prevent oil companies from offshore drilling, even with the high poll numbers against them. Led by Speaker Pelosi, Democrats are ignoring what the public is calling for.
They claim drilling for oil would take too long, and that oil companies are not drilling on land already leased to them. Americans have heard these excuses, and we still want offshore drilling.
