Is the Public Turning Against Militarism as a Solution to the World's Problems? Poll Shows Crisis of Confidence in Bush Administration

4 April 2007 at 10:50:40 AM

I watched Delusional-In-Chief last night on the repeat of his press conference, and wondered, for the millionth time, how he can keep ignoring the will of the American people, where the majority don't believe in his war of choice in Iraq, and want it to end. It's like watching your crazy uncle who secretly boozes slide off the deep end, and waiting for the moment of total breakdown. Meanwhile, Public Agenda has a poll that shows that how American's feel about Iraq is spilling over into their (our) opinions about foreign policy.

Anxiety Indicator Results

    --  84 percent are worried about the way things are going for the United  States in world affairs
    --  82 percent say the world is becoming more dangerous for the United States and its people
    --  73 percent say the United States is not doing a good job as a leader  in creating a more peaceful and prosperous world
    --  68 percent believe the rest of the world sees the United States  negatively
    --  67 percent say U.S. relations with the rest of the world are on the wrong track

    Iraq and the Spill-Over Effect

    --  Public support for military solutions in many scenarios is virtually off the table for most of the public. In dealing with Iran, support  for possible military action is in the single digits (8 percent)

    --  70 percent say that criticism that the United States has been too quick to resort to war is at least partly justified (31 percent say  it's "totally justified").  On what the government must do to fight  terrorism, 67 percent say we should put more emphasis on diplomatic  and economic methods, while 27 percent say more emphasis on military  efforts

    --  84 percent say "initiating military force only when we have the support of our allies" should be important to our foreign policy (51 percent say "very important")
