According to a new McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll, most Americans surveyed are worried about a disaster like Fukushima occuring here. As the San Luis Obispo Tribune reported yesterday:
The McClatchy-Marist survey found that a solid majority of Americans – 57 percent – think that a nuclear crisis is probable here; 41 percent thought such a crisis was likely, while another 16 percent said it was very likely.
Far fewer think it’s not going to happen: 31 percent said it wasn’t very likely, while 9 percent said it wasn’t likely at all.
The April 10-14 poll surveyed 629 people nationwide. The margin of error was plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Are we prepared for a Fukushima-scale accident?
