Forty-six percent (46%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the United Nations. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 19% have an unfavorable view, 28% offer a neutral assessment, and 7% are not sure.
Democrats are far more enthusiastic about the international organization than other voters. Sixty-three percent (63%) of those in Nancy Pelosi’s party have a favorable opinion of the UN while only 7% express a negative view. Among Republicans, the numbers are 41% positive and 29% negative. As for Independent voters, 32% have a favorable view and 22% unfavorable (see crosstab results).
This modestly positive view may be tied to the fact that 48% believe the UN generally supports the United States while 21% disagree.
When there is a disagreement between UN policy and the U.S. Constitution, 70% believe that our nation should follow the Constitution. Just 13% think we should follow UN policy.
Forty-eight percent (48%) of voters believe the United States pays more than it’s fair share of the UN budget. Just 11% believe it pays less than its fair share. Eighteen percent (18%) believe the payments are about right and 23% are not sure.
Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Republicans believe the U.S. is paying more than it’s fair share. So to 37% of Democrats and 43% of Independent voters.
