Topic: Foreign Affairs (2/4) - Obama's fifth-worst issue

Do you think the United States should or should not take the leading role among all other countries in the world in trying to solve international problems?

Yes: 45%

No: 54%

Throughout America’s history, citizens have debated whether the country should take a lead role in solving the world’s problems, or err on the side of caution, staying out of conflicts until absolutely necessary.

Over the last year of polling, Americans have leaned toward caution, preferring to focus on problems at home. While this does not necessarily reflect directly on Obama, it speaks to the nation’s sense of unease about overseas activity and drawn-out, expensive conflicts. It’s likely this sentiment doesn’t help the president’s overall marks on foreign policy.
