The United States and the United Nations in the 112th Congress
The enclosed brie ngs demonstrate, the UN is an indispensable platform for international cooperation and burden sharing on the great global issues of our time. And polls tell us this cooperation is what the American people want. In research undertaken on behalf of BWC by a bipartisan polling team in October 2010, 59 percent of Americans viewed the UN favorably. Moreover, we found 63 percent of Americans supported payment of U.S. dues to the UN on time and in full; 70 percent felt the same way about UN peacekeeping dues.
