A new poll out shows Americans remain in favor of building the Keystone XL Pipeline.
The latest Rasmussen Poll found 58 percent of voters support -- and 26 percent oppose -- TransCanada's proposal to build the pipeline to haul crude oil from Hardisty, Alberta to Port Arthur, Texas.
Fifty one percent of those in the survey believe it is possible to build the pipeline in a way that doesn't damage the environment, while 24 percent say it's not possible. Another 24 percent aren't sure.
When it comes to the pipeline's effect on the U.S. economy, 60 percent say it would be good for the economy, while seven percent believe it will be bad.
The rest are either undecided or think it will have no impact.
The survey polled 1,000 likely voters over the past two days to get those results.
