Infrastructure Investments Policy - Political Parties and Stances

Infrastructure appears to be slightly more of a priority for Democrats than for Republicans. While the Democratic platform places a decent amount of emphasis on the need for increased federal investment in infrastructure projects, the word ‘infrastructure’ is only mentioned in the Republican platform three times. Among voters, infrastructure appears to be an issue of high importance for voters of both parties, although marginally more so for Democrats. Polling reflects that 71% of Democrats report that investing in infrastructure ought to be a priority, compared to 61% of Republicans.

According to spending polling, 57% of Republicans are for increasing infrastructure spending, 9% for lowering, and 31% for keeping spending the same compared with 64% of Democrats for increasing infrastructure spending, 7% for lowering, and 27% for keeping spending the same.
