National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted December 12-13, 2016
By Rasmussen Reports



1* Does the United States spend too much on the military and national security, not enough, or about the right amount?


2* To ensure its safety, should the United States always spend at least three times as much on defense as any other nation?


3* President-elect Donald Trump argues that U.S. taxpayers should not still be paying for the defense of European nations that don’t pay their fair share for their own defense. Should the United States remove its troops from Western Europe and let the Europeans defend themselves if they refuse to pick up more of the costs involved?
