Americans Want the U.S. Overseas Meddling to Stop

WSJ reports:
Americans in large numbers want the U.S. to reduce its role in world affairs even as a showdown with Russia over Ukraine preoccupies Washington, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

In a marked change from past decades, nearly half of those surveyed want the U.S. to be less active on the global stage, with fewer than one-fifth calling for more active engagement—an anti-interventionist current that sweeps across party lines.
Below are the poll results which show a near majority want the U.S. to be less active in world affairs.


  1. The dogs bark; the caravan moves on.

  2. The American public are as dense as a brick, but after a decade of incessant and fruitless warfare and imperialism even they have grown tired of the constant meddling. Its doesn't matter though because the American people don't run the country. Voting doesn't change anything when the only choices are the Evil Party or the Stupid Party. Maybe someday voters will realize they have been swindled but I wouldn't count on it.
