Poll: Pennsylvanians Favor Statewide Ban On Fracking

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Pennsylvanians are split on the future of the fracking industry.

A Franklin and Marshall College poll found 48 percent of voters favor a statewide ban on fracking while 39 percent oppose such a ban.

The major divide is by location.

Sixty-one percent of people in Allegheny County want fracking to be banned across the state.

But only 28 percent in the rest of Southwestern Pennsylvania are in favor of a ban.
