On Monday and Tuesday, April 21-22, Rasmussen Reports, a highly-respected national polling organization conducted a nationwide telephone poll to define how Americans feel about the Keystone XL Pipeline. The organization contacted 1,000 "likely-voters" to get a crystal-clear picture of what Americans think of the project. Likely-voters are the most important group to pollsters because they consistently show up to vote and that can influence the outcome of elections.

The results of the poll stand in stark contrast to the Obama administration's determined efforts to delay making a decision on the final leg of the Keystone XL pipeline until after the upcoming elections.

Roughly two-thirds of the likely-voters (65%) believe the United States does not do enough to develop its own gas and oil resources.

62% believe it will be good for the U.S. economy if the pipeline is built. That’s up from 56% at the beginning of the year and also a new high. It's not surprising that the percentage who think the pipeline will be bad for the economy is unchanged at 10%. Twelve percent say it will have no impact, while 16% are not sure.

There's no doubt about it, America wants to see the oil flowing from Canada down to the refineries at the Gulf!
