From ARTBA, American Road & Transportation Builders Association 

(WASHINGTON)—While a new national poll shows “almost 90 percent believe “the Democratic leadership and President Trump should work together during 2019 to pass legislation that would improve other infrastructure.”

The poll was conducted January 23-24 by Rasmussen Reports for the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) and American Public Transportation Association (APTA).  Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, Inc.  The margin of sampling error for the poll is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.

Support for work this year on a broader, bipartisan infrastructure bill was expressed by 88 percent of both Republican and Democrat likely voters and 84 percent of those not aligned with either party.

“This survey demonstrates once again that public support for federal investment in traditional infrastructure programs is broad and transcends partisan politics and ideological divides,” ARTBA President & CEO Dave Bauer said.  “A bipartisan bill that would make major new federal infrastructure investments would help break the policy gridlock in Washington and have overwhelming public support.”
