57% Think U.S. Should Stay Out of Political Unrest in Egypt
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Voters are much more pessimistic about the government changes in Egypt brought about by the Arab Spring protests, but most believe the United States should stay out of the growing political unrest there.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Likely U.S. Voters feel the United States should leave the situation in Egypt alone. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 18% think America should get more involved in the Egyptian political situation, while 25% are undecided.
