Sixty-six percent of American voters are concerned climate change will impact them or family member personally, while 33 percent are not, a new Quinnipiac poll reveals.

Here are the poll highlights:

  • 76 percent of voters surveyed say they do not believe climate change is a hoax, while 19 percent believe it is.
  • 65 percent believe climate change is caused by human activity, while 28 percent disagree.
  • 62 percent believe President Donald Trump should not remove specific regulations intended to fight climate change, while 28 percent are in favor.
  • 72 percent say it is a "bad idea" to cut funding for scientific research on climate change, while 25 percent disagree.
  • 18 percent say the U.S. is doing enough to address climate change, while another 18 percent say the nation is doing too much, and 59 percent say more needs to be done.
  • 56 percent say the U.S. should discourage the use of coal because of environmental concerns, while 36 percent say the U.S. should encourage coal use.

"It's personal," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "Climate change is an existential threat, many voters feel. They are concerned, and some are very concerned, about the looming menace of climate change."

Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:

  • 64 percent say they are opposed to building a wall on the border of Mexico, while 33 percent favor it.
  • 56 percent say they disapprove of Trump's handling of U.S. policy toward Russia, while 30 percent approve it.
  • 68 percent support an independent commission to investigate potential links between Trump campaign advisers and the Russians, while 27 percent oppose it.
  • 64 percent do not believe former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.

Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,171 voters nationwide from March 30-April 3. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
