Support for different statements, by 2019 election result.

Well over two thirds of voters (73%), including 71% of Conservative voters and 67% of new Conservative voters in 2019 agree with the statement “It is everyone’s responsibility, including all members of the public, to reduce their carbon emissions before 2050” versus just 27% who agree that “It is the responsibility of the biggest polluters, not all members of the public, to reduce carbon emissions before 2050”. Support for everyone taking responsibility rises among degree-holders and AB voters, and particularly among Remain voters and Liberal Democrat voters.
