“While a handful of localities have fought the pipeline, more than two dozen in Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina have officially endorsed it. What’s more, polling shows that Virginians in general support the ACP by a nearly 2-1 margin. Critics, whose opposition is intense, are more likely to show up at meetings and demonstrations, which can produce a misleading impression of public sentiment. Overall sentiment leans lopsidedly in favor of the pipeline, not against it.”
