America in the Age of Uncertainty

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, which has conducted public opinion surveys since 1974, released a report last month entitled “America in the Age of Uncertainty.” Despite what the title implies, the results show a broad consensus among Americans on how their country should be run, at least in regards to foreign policy. The survey draws on four categories of respondents: Democrats, Independents, Republicans, and Trump Supporters, finding large commonalities in the areas of immigration, globalization, and American commitment to NATO, among other issues. According to the New York Times, the survey results demonstrate that “Hillary Clinton, if she is the next president, could rally a majority of the nation around a common agenda.” America is not so irrevocably polarized after all.

The full report is available here.
