43%: Halt U.S. funding to U.N.
By a 43%-39% margin, Americans say the U.S. should cut off funding to the United Nations.
The question of whether the U.S. should continue providing financial support to the U.N. prompted a partisan response. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans called for a halt to U.S. funding for the U.N., 58% of Democrats said U.N. funding should continue, and independents opposed funding the U.N. by a 47%-37% margin.
Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry recently called for the U.S. to “de-fund” the United Nations.
The scientific telephone survey of 1,100 registered voters nationwide was conducted October 25, 2011 and has a margin of error of ±3%. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults.
