Description

Set to be released next week, a new poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, conducted in association with the Council on Foreign Relations, examines American priorities on key foreign policy issues from terrorism to human rights, and reports on perceptions of the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan. What do these attitudes mean for U.S. foreign policy in the campaign and the next administration? Please join Andrew Kohut, Marvin Kalb, and Margaret Warner to discuss the pollís findings and reflect on its implications for policy.
