"Nuclear Power Loses Support in New Poll"

"What had been growing acceptance of nuclear power in the United States has eroded sharply in the wake of the nuclear crisis in Japan, with support for building nuclear power plants dropping slightly lower than it was immediately after the accident at the Three Mile Island plant in 1979, according to a CBS News poll released on Tuesday evening."

Michael Cooper and Dalia Sussman report for the New York Times March 22, 2011.
