Should Trump's Foreign Policy Be Like Reagan's or Obama's?

Following his speech in Poland last week, some are calling President Trump’s remarks touting the values and strengths of the West Ronald Reagan-esque. And half of voters think that’s whose foreign policy Trump should emulate, rather than that of his most recent predecessor.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a president with a foreign policy more like Reagan. Forty-two percent (42%) prefer a foreign policy more like Barack Obama. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
