New Online Article Tackles Public Confidence in US Foreign Policy

The September/October issue of Foreign Affairs will feature a major article by Public Agenda Chairman Daniel Yankelovich. In the article, "Poll Positions," Dan analyzes data from the Public Agenda Confidence in U.S. Foreign Policy Index and finds America split in two along religious and party lines. Across this chasm, however, significant majorities are starting to come together based on discontent with the war in Iraq, U.S. relations with the Muslim world, and illegal immigration. Public Agenda's Confidence in U.S. Foreign Policy Index is a new tracking project designed to explore the public's long-term judgments and beliefs about America's role in the world. For those who are not subscribers, the editors at Foreign Affairs have graciously made Dan's article available to Public Agenda friends and supporters via the following link - The complete findings of the Public Agenda Confidence In U.S. Foreign Policy Index are available at
