Americans Want Action to Rebuild America

New poll finds majorities support infrastructure investment — and they want it to be American-made

By The Mellman Group and Public Opinion Strategies

Across party lines, big majorities of likely voters place infrastructure as a top policy priority, a new national survey finds. Voters also overwhelmingly back Buy America policies that ensure all materials used in all federally funded infrastructure projects are Made in America.

The Takeaways

  1. Likely 2020 general election voters from both parties say repairing roads, bridges, water system and critical infrastructure using American workers and products is very important.

  2. Jobs, safety, and the costs of waiting are among the most important reasons for investing in our infrastructure, voters agree.

  3. There's widespread bipartisan support for Buy America preferences that ensure taxpayer-funded infrastructure projects use American-made goods and materials.
