Poll: Obama, McCain supporters agree on alternative energy

Most of John McCain's and Barack Obama's supporters favor government backing for alternative energy such as wind and solar power, even if those sources of energy are more expensive than coal and oil, a national poll released Tuesday finds. By contrast, 19 percent of Obama's supporters and 34 percent of McCain's supporters favored more emphasis on building new oil- and coal-fired power plants.
