Campaign 2008: Public Opinion and Foreign Policy
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 poll’s findings and reflect on its implications for policy.
Panel discusses the role of foreign policy in the 2008 presidential election.
Andrew Kohut, founding director of the Pew Research Center, discusses the themes outlined in his forthcoming CFR Working Paper Resilient American Values: Optimism in an Era of Growing Inequality and Economic Difficulty, as part of CFR's State and Local Officials Conference Call series.
