Americans support the idea of constructing the Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States by a nearly 3 to 1 margin, with 65 percent saying it should be approved and 22 percent opposed, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The findings also show that the public thinks the massive project, which aims to ship 830,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta and the northern Great Plains to refineries on the Gulf Coast, will produce significant economic benefits. Eighty-five percent say the pipeline would create a significant number of jobs, with 62 percent saying they strongly believed that to be the case.
At the same time, nearly half of those interviewed 47 percent say they think Keystone will pose a significant risk to the environment.
That so many Americans back the pipeline, even with environmental risks, highlights the quandary facing President Obama and his top aides as they weigh whether to approve the proposal.

Didn’t know 22% of Americans lived in caves and had no use for heat or electricity, and couldn’t understand basic economics and math. But I guess I was wrong.
That 22% is the liberal enviro-extreme MSNBC crowd.
Heck, most Americans who believe in global warming are too stupid to realize that the solutions being offered, a carbon tax and alternative energy, will increase their costs for energy to heat and light their houses and food.
Maybe because no one has explained it to them.
Telling in that this survey is so easy to find in the MSM today.
They are doing ground prep for Obama. He has made up his mind to throw the greenies under the bus. Likely over the July 4 holiday.
