YouGov polled 2052 people in September 2017. 41 percent said they want the coal exit to happen as quickly as possible. 56 percent said the most pressing issue was a faster renewables expansion, and 47 percent would like to see support for climate-friendly alternatives in the transport sector, such as buses, trains and cycling. 30 percent said carmakers should be legally obliged to introduce more e-cars in all price categories.
