US opinion on foreign policy shows partisan divisions

Thursday, March 9, 2023


Two-thirds of the US public continues to approve of President Joe Biden’s pledge to support Ukraine “for as long as it takes”, even if the conflict is prolonged. However, public approval among Republican supporters has fallen significantly since the start of the conflict as partisan divisions deepen over foreign policy.


  • Public antipathy towards China will spur tougher policies toward Beijing, with possibilities for bipartisan cooperation.
  • Despite strong public support among Democrats, transformative aspects of Biden’s foreign agenda will struggle to gain traction.
  • Republican presidential hopefuls will study foreign policy opinion trends to help determine their positions on Ukraine and China.
