There is no polling evidence that Al Gore’s campaign against global warming is taking hold with the American public, according to Gallup Poll Editor Frank Newport.

In an interview with U.S. News & World Report, Newport said, “It's just not caught on. They have failed."

There are no polling measures that Newport has discovered indicating Al Gore is winning the debate over global warming. The public is worried about the economy. Period. Newport says the economy trumps the environment right now, a strong indicator that President Obama's bid to put a cap-and-trade pollution regime into operation isn't likely to be politically popular.

Newport points out that some 41 percent believe global warming claims are exaggerated, and "that's the highest we've seen." Ask people to name their biggest concerns, and just 1 percent to 2 percent cite the environment. "The environment doesn't show up at all," says Newport.

"It's Al Gore's greatest frustration," says Newport. "We seem less concerned than more about global warming over the years. . . . Despite the movies and publicity and all that, we're just not seeing it take off with the American public. And that was occurring even before the latest economic recession."
