A new CNN poll finds that climate change is the most prevalent issue on the minds of Democratic voters.

Not even universal healthcare garnered a “very important” rating from that many prospective voters.
And, sure enough, some would-be Democratic nominees are making climate change a signature issue. Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, and Elizabeth Warren have all outlined plans.
