Almost three-quarters of voters in coalmining seats support halving Australia's emissions by 2030, while a clear majority want fossil fuel subsidies redirected into clean energy.
Centre-right think tank the Blueprint Institute polled voters across nine regional seats with significant coal employment.
Some 72 per cent supported redirecting coal and gas subsidies into large renewable energy projects, while 80 per backed investing in clean industries such as green hydrogen.
Among coalition voters, 68 per cent supported redirecting coal and gas subsidies into large renewable energy projects and 81 per cent backed investing in clean industries.
Support for a 50 per cent reduction in Australia's emissions by 2030, in line with the US and UK, registered 74 per cent.
Of those from households employed by coal, 63 per cent supported redirecting subsidies and 78 per cent supported clean hydrogen projects.
More than half of people who do not believe humans are the main contributor to climate change still back the economic case that building more renewable energy facilities will create local jobs.
Blueprint regional researcher Kate Green said the study aimed to give regions affected by climate policy a genuine voice on the national stage.
"It seems the data rejects what some would have us think about the attitudes of people in regions, including regions which contain coal employment," she said.
"It's clear regional people now believe the jobs created by renewables projects and clean hydrogen are real."
The seats included key Queensland coalition-held seats of Flynn and Capricornia in Queensland, both set to be key contests at the next election.
In Flynn, 66 per cent of people believed humans were behind the changing climate and 80 per cent supported green hydrogen investment.
Also, 68 per cent in the seat backed reducing carbon emissions 50 per cent by 2030.
Labor has chosen Gladstone Mayor Matt Burnett to go up against state MP Colin Boyce in Flynn, which is being vacated by Nationals MP Ken O'Dowd.
More than seven in 10 voters across the electorate believed renewables projects would create jobs, a statement 73 per cent backed across the wider survey.
Agriculture Minister David Littleproud's safe electorate of Maranoa in the Sunshine State was polled.
Voters in the NSW Labor-held seats of Hunter and Shortland were also surveyed, along with Calare, where Nationals cabinet minister Andrew Gee is the MP.
Government held-electorates Gippsland in Victoria, Grey in SA and WA's O'Connor rounded out the nine.
The findings come as Prime Minister Scott Morrison considers Nationals' demands for signing up to a 2050 net zero target.
Some in the junior coalition partner remain steadfastly opposed to more ambitious emissions reduction action.
The YouGov survey used a minimum sample of 400 in each electorate with a total of 3763 adults polled across the study.
