New Poll Shows Majority Of Pennsylvanians Ok With Nuclear Power

It has been 40 years since the Three Mile Island nuclear accident near Harrisburg, and Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster is out with a new poll on Pennsylvania residents' attitudes about nuclear power. The Franklin and Marshall College poll found 55 percent of poll respondents strongly or somewhat favor including nuclear power in the state's longterm energy strategy, while 32 percent strongly or somewhat oppose that. However, support is more divided when it comes to legislation that's been proposed to help keep the struggling Three Mile Island and Beaver Valley nuclear power plants open.
