Poll: less than half of Americans support NATO

Alliance popularity declined in the US and Europe

A poll conducted by YouGov on the 70th anniversary of the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty showed that only 44% of Americans support US participation in the treaty. This is three percentage points lower than in 2017, when the previous survey was conducted on this topic..

Residents of other NATO member states were also interviewed..Poll: less than half of Americans support NATO As it turned out, over two years the level of support for the Alliance has dropped significantly among the key European allies of the United States – in the UK from 73% to 59%, in Germany – from 68% to 54%, in France from 54% to 39%.

According to the study, different generations of the United States have different attitudes towards NATO: 56% of the baby boomers who were born in 1946-1964, and who grew up during the Cold War, believe that the Alliance continues to play an important role in protecting Western countries.
