Security Remains Americans Biggest Foreign Policy Concern

Security is Americans’ main foreign policy goal. Terrorism has been the most important foreign policy issue for Americans since it was first mentioned just after 9/11. Terrorism joins nuclear proliferation and energy security as peoples’ top concerns. Trade, human rights and nation-building are lower on the list.

Not surprising, Democrats are more enamored with working with the UN, promoting human rights and promoting the economies of other countries than Republicans and less supportive of defending allies. Neither party is very interested in building democracy.

See Gallup polls:
Republicans, Democrats agree on top foreign policy goals
Americans say preventing terrorism top foreign policy goal
