confidence in U.S. foreign policy

A new survey by Public Agenda finds Americans more confident in the nation's foreign policy. While half the respondents say that relations with the rest of the world are "off on the wrong track," that's a 15% drop from the levels of 2007-8. Increases in confidence were, not surprisingly, greatest among Democrats and independents.

These attitude polls strike me as better indicators of public feelings than issue-specific polls, where the level of public information and the wording of the question can make big differences.
