Four out of five Americans would support "a tax on the windfall profits of oil companies" if the resulting revenues were devoted to alternative energy research, according to an Opinion Research Corp. (ORC) poll conducted for 40mpg.org and the Boston-based nonprofit and nonpartisan Civil Society Institute (CSI).

CSI is a think tank and the 40mpg.org campaign is a project of CSI.
