National Poll Findings

In September 2014, RTC engaged leading Republican and Democratic pollsters to find out what likely 2016 voters for both parties really thought about the federal role in encouraging active transportation. The remarkable poll findings are an important tool for trail builders and supporters as they continue to fight back attacks against trail funding.
