Kentucky's two U.S. Senators, Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, show no signs of evolving on their contrarian views of climate change. But across America, new polling shows their fellow Republicans' opinions may be thawing along with the polar ice cap.

.

While just 47 percent of conservative Republicans think global warming is happening, that's up 19 percentage points over the past two years, according to a new survey by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication.

.

Still, the Yale program found that Democrats are more likely than Republicans to be convinced that people are causing the warming and are willing to support climate action with potential implications in this election year.

.

Some 75 percent of Democrats believe climate change is mostly caused by people, compared to 49 percent of liberal and moderate Republicans and just 26 percent of conservative Republicans, the survey found.

.

The liberal blog Climate Progress reports that the shift is enough to put pressure on some more moderate Republican senators with constituents that appear to be increasingly receptive to mainstream climate science, which warns of global dangers in the decades and centuries ahead. Specifically, it calls out Sens. Mark Kirk, R-Illinois, Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire, and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, as vulnerable to Democratic challenges on the environment.

.

The blog went to Michelle Pautz, an associate professor of political science at the University of Dayton, for an explanation: "By acknowledging climate change, a (Republican) candidate could appeal to voters who think it is ridiculous that a candidate does not agree with the overwhelming consensus of peer-reviewed scientific research that documents climate change is happening.

In March, Gallup found that Americans were taking global warming more seriously than at any time in the last eight years: Some 64 percent of adults in the country told the pollster they were worried "a great deal" or a "fair amount" about global warming. That was up from 51 percent in 2011. Gallup found that 40 percent of Republicans surveyed worry a great deal or fair amount about climate change, compared to 31 just last year.

.

Democrats' concerns jumped six percentage points, to 84 percent, over the previous year, illustrating the continued divide between political parties, Gallup found.
