More Americans want a more engaged foreign policy, but...neither candidate is his or her party's nominee.
The percentage of the public saying the country does too little has almost doubled since November, from 17 to 31 percent. Thirty-nine percent say the U.S. does too much.
Democratic former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been arguing for a more engaged in U.S. presence in the world ahead of a possible presidential run, in contrast to possible opponent Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and, to some extent, President Obama.
Despite the overall increase in those saying they want the U.S. to do more, however only 24 percent of Clinton's own party say the U.S. does too little, compared to 36 percent who say too much. For Republicans, the numbers are reversed, with 46 percent saying too much and 37 percent too little.
But The Hill doesn't mention that.
Oh, and by the way, Pew says that a majority of Americans thinks Obama isn't tough enough on foreign policy. What a surprise....
Obama’s approach to foreign policy continues to be viewed as not tough enough: 54% say Obama is not tough enough in his approach on foreign policy and national security issues, while 36% say his approach is about right and just 3% say he is too tough.Are Americans waking up to the disaster Obama has wrought? We can only hope.
