A new CBS News Poll finds that Americans are rapidly reconsidering their
views of offshore drilling as oil continues to spill into the Gulf of

In the latest poll, 51% of people believe increased offshore drilling is
"too risky" with 40% still in favor.

That is a huge swing from August 2008, when 62% of people favored
increased offshore drilling and just 28% opposed it. It is also a large
shift from just a month ago, when 41% believed it was too risky and 46%
were in favor.

The new poll also shows that just as many people now view the spill as
part of a broader problem as consider it an isolated incident, with each
taking 45%. A month ago, 51% believed it to be an isolated incident,
compared to 35% that saw it as part of a broader problem.
