Poll shows Americans are against China-backed EV plants on US soil

President Joe Biden's green agenda, specifically when it comes to building electric vehicles, took a hit last week. 

According to Breitbart, a new poll revealed that most Americans are not in favor of states "allowing Chinese-owned corporations to build Electric Vehicle (EV) plants, using taxpayer dollars, in the United States."

A McLaughlin & Associates poll conducted last month revealed the bad news for the Biden administration.

The poll sampled 1,000 Americans across multiple demographic groups.

The numbers

The left's EV agenda is aggressive, and efforts to push EVs on Americans are at an all-time high.

The Biden administration recently realized that UAW auto workers are not on board with the administration's vision of an all-EV future. Americans also made that clear.

The poll revealed that 56% of Americans said states "should not invest taxpayer dollars to help with the transition to EVs, because working with countries like China is not worth jeopardizing national security and other American auto manufacturing jobs."

Less than 30% of Americans, according to the poll, were in favor of China-backed companies establishing EV plants here in America.

The issue, when broken down by party affiliation, also revealed alarming numbers for the Biden administration and Democrats in general.

Breitbart noted:

About 17 percent of voters said they are unsure about the issue.

Those who said states should not invest taxpayer money into China-owned EV plants include 74 percent of Republicans, 40 percent of Democrats, 54 percent of swing voters, 61 percent of white Americans, 51 percent of black Americans, and nearly 4-in-10 Hispanic Americans.


Just last week in Michigan, voters proved to the entire nation that they're not interested in China-backed EV-related plants in the United States.

In a separate Breitbart piece, it was noted that a group of Mecosta County, Michigan voters successfully ousted a group of six Republicans who were in favor of using taxpayer subsidies to fund a China-back EV battery plant -- a plan supported by radical progressive Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

The report noted:

On Tuesday night, voters in Green Charter Township and Big Rapids Township recalled a total of six local elected officials combined — all Republicans — who voted in favor of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) plan to have CCP-linked Gotion Inc. build a $2.4 billion EV battery plant in the area.

"This recall shows how the community did not want this," one of the activists said. "This just means we have a voice again. We may be small, but we are powerful."
