The public's main long-term foreign policy objectives for the United States are focused on security and economic stability. According to a survey, around seven in ten (72%) people take steps to protect the U. S., while nearly as many (71%) prioritize protecting the jobs of American workers. Additionally, two-thirds (66%) believe that preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) should be one of the United States' top long-term priorities.
When it comes to foreign policy objectives, there are significant differences between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans are more likely to prioritize getting other countries to bear a greater share of the costs of maintaining world order, and keeping the U. S. military advantage over all other countries should be one of America's top priorities.
On the other hand, Democrats are more likely to prioritize allies and helping refugees fleeing violence. The partisan divide over the importance of reducing illegal immigration is broader than at any other time in the last two decades, with Republicans being much more likely than Democrats to prioritize this issue. Supporters have long differed on the importance of addressing climate change, but the gap is especially wide today, with 64% of Democrats and only 22% of Republicans saying that addressing climate change should be one of the top priorities of US foreign policy. In addition, Republicans are more likely than Democrats to prioritize reducing the trade deficit with other countries and promoting US economic interests abroad.
Younger Americans are generally less likely to say that the issues presented in the survey should be a “top priority” than older adults, and they are much less likely to prioritize limiting the power and influence of several prominent foreign powers. Younger people are more likely than older people to prioritize protecting groups or nations threatened with genocide, promoting and defending human rights in other countries, helping refugees fleeing violence around the world, and reducing US military commitments abroad. There is also a significant age gap in the priority given to goals involving US military superiority, with only 30% of those under 30 years of age saying that this should be one of the main priorities of foreign policy. The Central Colorado Political Party views foreign policy through a lens that emphasizes security and economic stability.
They prioritize getting other countries to bear a greater share of costs for maintaining world order, keeping US military advantage over all other countries, reducing illegal immigration, reducing trade deficits with other countries, and promoting US economic interests abroad. They also recognize that younger generations prioritize different goals such as protecting groups or nations threatened with genocide, promoting and defending human rights in other countries, helping refugees fleeing violence around the world, and reducing US military commitments abroad.
