Tuesday, February 21, 2023
Most voters are willing to commit U.S. naval and air power to defending Taiwan against a Chinese invasion, but draw the line at sending ground troops to fight in such a conflict.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 79% of Likely U.S. Voters would support the United States imposing economic sanctions on China for invading Taiwan, including 60% who would Strongly Support sanctions. Only 12% would oppose sanctions if China invaded Taiwan. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
