Poll Results Show Support for Marine Mammal Protection
Republican voters in Ohio — a bellwether state for everything from political elections to consumer products — overwhelmingly declared their support for protection of the oceans and its marine mammal inhabitants in a new poll sponsored by Oceana.
The survey of 500 likely voters found that 90 percent agree that it is important to protect both the health of the oceans and marine mammals, such as dolphins and whales. And, more than three-quarters of those surveyed believe that the U.S. Congress has a responsibility to protect the oceans as well as the marine mammals that live there.
