New Poll Shows New Yorkers Oppose Digital Asset Mining Ban


Washington, D.C. – Club for Growth has released a new poll showing New York voters oppose the digital asset mining ban being considered by the state Senate.

“The proposed ban on digital asset mining is unpopular, and the more voters learn about it the less they like about it,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “The fact is, digital asset miners are among the largest funders of renewable energy in New York State, and the ban would have disastrous economic consequences, despite the claims by the radicals that support the ban.”

Key Takeaways:

  • A substantial portion of New York Voters oppose a two-year ban on digital asset mining.
  • Voting for a digital asset ban would reduce a legislator’s chance of re-election.
  • When voters become aware that there is a bi-partisan proposal to study the effects of digital asset mining and then take action, half support that approach. Only one-in-ten voters support an immediate ban on digital asset mining.
  • When voters know about the benefits of digital asset mining and the effects of a ban, they are even more opposed to the ban.
