Impressions of Plant Biotechnology: About one-third (32%) are somewhat or very favorable toward plant biotechnology, with about two in ten (19%) somewhat or very unfavorable and about three in ten (29%) neither favorable nor unfavorable.

Impressions of Animal Biotechnology: About three in ten (29%) Americans are somewhat or very favorable toward animal biotechnology, while slightly more than one-quarter (27%) are somewhat or very unfavorable, and about one-quarter (24%) are neither favorable nor unfavorable.

Interestingly, the majority of consumers who are either unfavorable or neutral in their views toward animal biotechnology cited “I don’t have enough information” about animal biotechnology (55%) and/or “I don’t understand the benefits of using biotechnology with animals” (39%) as their reason(s) for being unfavorable or neutral.

Perceptions of Nanotechnology: Slightly more than one-third (35%) of Americans have read or heard at least “a little”
