This chart is designed to show public opinion on foreign policy since the 1950s. The X-axis represents years; the Y-axis represents the percent of respondents. The three areas in the chart represent Agree, Disagree, and Don't Know (including other) to the statement "This country would be better off if we just stayed home and did not concern ourselves with problems in other parts of the world." From the chart, we can see that people tend to favor US intervention in world problems. Before World War II, American public opinion was often isolationist. Since World War II, public opinion has been much more internationalist, with a stable two-thirds to three-fourths believing that the U.S. should address itself to problems around the world. After 9-11, even more people tend to favor US intervention in world affairs, while the number of people with isolationist opinion has decreased.
