52% Want Stricter Trade and Travel Regulations on Communist Nations and Dictatorships

Fifty-two percent (52%) of voters believe the United States should impose stricter trade and travel regulations on communist nations and dictatorships.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on December 14-15, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
