Surveys Show Americans Support Ties with Europe


Keyser, Jason, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


The American public is moving away from the attitude that the United States should play the dominant role in world affairs and favors sharing power with a growing, unified Europe according to a study released yesterday.

The study, by the Program on International Policy Attitudes of the University of Maryland, however, also concluded that the American public was not seeking a retreat to national isolationism.

The study combined polls of 2,747 Americans, conducted from February to April, with surveys conducted in Europe by the U.S. Information Agency.
