One recent study found babies in the womb experience negative health effects from close exposure to a hydraulic fracturing site. The effects were strongest within a half mile of the site, with babies 25% more likely to have a low birth weight. Birth weights were not different for pregnant mothers living more than 2 miles from the site. Would you say you favor, oppose, or neither favor nor oppose the use of hydraulic fracturing in the United States?...Strongly favor, somewhat favor, neither favor nor oppose, somewhat oppose, strongly oppose (Source: Associated Press-NORC Energy Policy Survey, Aug, 2017)
