How do Americans think about US foreign policy towards China? According to a survey conducted by the Institute for Global Affairs, a small majority of respondents think the US should move more troops onto bases in allied countries like South Korea and Japan. However, respondents ages 18 to 29 tend to believe otherwise.

When survey respondents are asked if the United States should commit American forces to defend Taiwan if it went to war with China, a plurality of survey takers (42%) say they didn’t know. But the percentage of people who think the US should defend Taiwan declined by eight percentage points, compared with previous results.
