The Pew Center's polling shows that almost two-thirds of Americans say the U.S. should be less involved in leadership changes in the Middle East. Just 23 percent want the U.S. to take a larger role in those conflicts. At the same time, the poll finds at least one exception. Most Americans would rather see the U.S. take a firm stand against Iran's nuclear program than to avoid military conflict.
RUSSIA: MIXED VIEWS
Romney has singled out Russia as an enemy of the United States, and the public generally takes a negative view of the country's former Cold War foe. A survey conducted by the German Marshall Fund in June found that 42 percent of Americans held a favorable view of Russia, down six points from the previous year. The same survey showed Americans were split on whether the U.S. and Russia could cooperate, with 48 percent saying the two nations shared enough common interests that they could cooperate, and 43 percent saying their interests were so different that cooperation is impossible.
