A recent survey conducted by the Eurasia Group Foundation has shed light on American attitudes toward one of the most pressing international issues of our time: the security and future of Taiwan in the face of China’s territorial claims.

The study, based on responses from 1,000 US adults, reveals that a narrow majority of Americans would support the commitment of US troops to defend Taiwan should China invade.

The findings underscore the complex dynamics of American public opinion on foreign policy and international relations.

Support for Defending Taiwan

The Eurasia Group Foundation’s survey found that 42 percent of Americans would “somewhat support intervention” to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion.

An additional 18 percent expressed strong support for such intervention.

This indicates that a total of 60 percent of Americans would be in favor of US military action to protect Taiwan.

The reasons for this support are multifaceted.
