Confidence in U.S. Foreign Policy Index: Volume 2 Winter 2006

The second edition of the Public Agenda Confidence in U.S. Foreign Policy Index finds new concerns pushing their way into public consciousness even as worries identified in the first edition persist. Most of the public ranks promoting democracy in other countries as the least important of the foreign policy goals we asked about (20 percent say it's "very important") and seems to doubt the United States can achieve it. Public concern seems to have moderated in some cases, as with America's image in the Muslim world.
