Survey Of American Public Opinion On U.S. Foreign Policy Reveals Populist Trends

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs has just released its annual survey that polls Americans’ opinions on foreign policy-related issues. 

This year’s report also includes issues like terrorism, and climate change and has some surprising results. For example, a majority of Americans believe the US should maintain its role as a global leader and a majority support maintaining the US commitment to NATO. 

We discuss the findings with Dina Smeltz, senior fellow of Public Opinion and Foreign Policy at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. She’ll tell us what she thinks the trends may indicate for the future of American foreign policy and global influence.

Plus: We take a look at how the U.S. presidential candidates stack up against American public opinion.
