A new Insider poll found that a large majority of Americans strongly favor cleaner sources of energy over fossil fuels — and it's a belief that transcends party lines.

Power - Energy - Sources - Groups - Respondents

Solar and wind power were the top two preferred alternative energy sources among both groups of respondents, while coal was ranked dead last.
