New polling shows voters in battleground states and congressional districts support extending tax credits for renewable power and creating incentives for deploying storage technologies.

Why it matters: House Democrats recently unveiled legislation that would lengthen expiring incentives for developing wind, solar and other projects, and add a new credit for batteries and other forms of storage.

What they did: The Democratic polling firm Global Strategy Group conducted the national survey, and broke out results for nine Senate battlegrounds (including Michigan, Colorado and Arizona) and swing congressional districts nationwide.

  • It was commissioned by the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, the Solar Energy Industries Association and others.

What they found: Check out the chart above. Also, the polling showed that support for the incentives is quite strong across party lines.

  • Other results show that Democratic candidates who support the incentives would see increased support in political battlegrounds.

The big picture: Portions of the House bill may be up for negotiations in this Congress, so the polling could provide political ammunition for backers.

  • And looking past the bill's uncertain near-term prospects, the results could be used to bolster political support for Democratic policy efforts if the party gains more power in the 2020 elections.

Of note: The online nationwide survey of 800 registered voters was conducted in early November and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.5%. The MOE is 3.7% for Senate battleground results and 3.9% for the swing congressional districts.

The Big Ten announced Tuesday that it has voted to postpone its 2020 fall sports season, including football, due to risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic, hoping instead to play in the spring.

Why it matters: The move from one of the most prominent conferences in college sports will almost certainly prompt other Power Five leagues to follow suit.

In a show of unity at the Democratic National Convention, 13 of Joe Biden's former 2020 challengers will appear via video to talk about the party's vision for the country and how they'll work with Biden to get it done.

Why it matters: Coalescing around Biden and his eventual running mate will help Democrats head into the general election against President Trump with a united front — unlike what they did in 2016.
