Poll: U.S. environmental conditions worsening

A new Gallup poll finds that more Americans rate the nation's environmental conditions as only "fair" or worse,
and 63 percent now say conditions are worsening, an increase of 6 percent compared to a similar poll in 2001.

The poll, cited here, was conducted in collaboration with CNN and USA Today. It involved phone interviews with 1,004 American adults between Mar. 7 and Mar. 10, 2005. Margin of error is 3 percent.

Results showed that only 37 percent now rate U.S. environmental conditions as "good," 48 percent say conditions are "fair" and 10 percent selected "poor." These are all increases from 41 percent, 47 percent and 6 percent, respectively, compared to the 2001 poll.
