February Verified Voter Omnibus – Foreign Policy
In a year of rising tensions with China and Russia, we picked five questions to gauge whether voters have an appetite for an assertive foreign policy.
Almost half think it would be bad to cut defense spending to balance the budget. But within each party, younger voters are more likely than older voters to think cutting defense to balance the budget would actually be a good thing.
For each of the five questions, we find about half or more of our sample selecting the view that one might associate with an assertive foreign policy.
