Abstract:

For much of the past sixty years, the United States has held a strong consensus about its continued support for the United Nations. American administrations, public opinion, the media and political party platforms have all confirmed the commitment to the values portrayed by the United Nations as well as its utility as an instrument of American statecraft. At the same time, there have been strong voices of dissent. From the early scorn of isolationist to recent assertions that the United Nations is a “dangerous place” and claims of its “irrelevance” there appears to be a growing sense of mistrust within both the government and American public opinion. As we witness increasing calls for the “UN out of the US” and the “US out of the UN” we must ask, is the support for the UN within the United States really on the decline? Do Americans view the UN through a glass darkly?

and general competency of the public in regards to international affairs. Thus there are inherent normative implications in the discussions about the impact of public opinion. However this research does not address whether public opinion should impact policy making. Further investigation is needed for assessing whether it is well informed. In light of increasing calls for international assistance as well as changing norms of “new interventionism” there is a great need to explore the relationship of public opinion and
