Voters Show Little Support for U.S. Role in Hong Kong Protests

Most voters here are aware of the escalating pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong but don’t favor U.S. involvement. They’re also slightly less likely to suspect that our government gives China a pass on bad behavior because of its economic muscle.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States should be doing more to support the pro-democracy protestors in Hong Kong. Thirty-four percent (34%) oppose more U.S. involvement, while 37% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
