People in the U.S. feel increasingly favorable about foreign trade, according to a new poll from Gallup.
The poll comes as President Obama is struggling to gain traction on his trade agenda – which includes potential pacts with European and Asian nations – amid skepticism from Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill.
According to Gallup, the trade issue breaks down less on party lines than on education level. College graduates are much more likely to favor expanded trade than high school graduates. But more than 50 percent of Democrats and Republicans both back the idea.
