Chicago Council on Global Affairs

The Chicago Council has been conducting annual surveys of U.S. public opinion on foreign policy issues for decades. The latest survey, like earlier ones, reveals important contrasts between the view of foreign policy elites and the general public. This disjunction appears in several instances, perhaps most notably in the Israel-Palestine conflict where the general view is that the U.S. should favor neither side.  For instance, the 2014 shows strong general support for U.S. engagement abroad despite widely repeated claims that the public has become far more isolationist.
