Tomorrow night, the U.S. presidential contenders will discuss domestic and foreign policy at a town hall meeting style debate in New York state. But what exactly should they be talking about?
Two surveys last month by polling firm Rasmussen found that more than half of Americans believed national security and the war on terrorism were very important issues, while a third said Afghanistan is also of key importance. Meanwhile, a poll by the Pew Global Attitudes Project last month found that half of Americans view China’s emergence as a major world power as a threat to the United States, while three quarters of members of the public said that the large amount of U.S. debt held by China was a very serious problem.
Global Public Square invites readers to share their thoughts on the most important foreign policy issues facing the United States and to talk about why they matter to you. Do you want to see President Obama and Mitt Romney talking about Iran’s nuclear program? China’s currency? The Arab Spring? Or something else completely? We’ll be rounding up and publishing some of the best responses later this week.
