Trump Voters and Millennials agree on the importance of the UN, new Poll Finds

“The poll’s findings prove that voters from red states and blue states, young and old, understand the value of the UN to American interests,” says Peter Yeo, President of the Better World Campaign.

Exactly one month after President Trump and Ambassador Nikki Haley’s first appearance at the United Nations General Assembly, a new bipartisan poll released today by the Better World Campaign finds that 65 percent of Republicans and specifically 58 percent of Trump voters agree the UN is still needed today. Similarly, among millennial voters, 86 percent also agreed with that sentiment, making support for the UN one area that millennials and Trump voters agree on.

Even amid a tight fiscal environment, 53 percent of Trump voters support paying our dues to UN Peacekeeping, a budget line-item that has been under particular scrutiny this year. Millennial support for this issue is even stronger, with 84 percent in favor of paying our UN regular dues and 83 percent favor paying our UN Peacekeeping dues.

“The poll’s findings prove that voters from red states and blue states, young and old, understand the value of the UN to American interests,” says Peter Yeo, President of the Better World Campaign.

Support for the UN among millennials was overwhelmingly positive across the board. Specifically, 75 percent of millennial voters believe the UN supports America’s goals and objectives around the world. Moreover, more than 92 percent of millennial voters agreed that “it is important for the U.S. to maintain an active role in the UN.”

“The largest generation in the U.S. overwhelmingly agrees that the UN is a positive force for good and that the organization’s efforts ultimately support American objectives around the world,” added Yeo.
