Public Opinion and America's Next Global Priorities

Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are set to have a historic clash on foreign policy. But what are the views of the American people – Democrats, Republican, and Independents – and how do these reflect or inform party platforms? The 2016 Chicago Council Survey of American public opinion on US foreign policy will reveal the partisan divisions, as well as surprising convergences, on topics such as trade, immigration, terrorism, and climate change. A major report on the survey will be released by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs – in partnership with The Washington Post and the Wilson Center – in advance of the October presidential debate on foreign policy. A panel of experts will debate what the survey findings mean for the future of American foreign policy and American influence and power abroad.
