ABSTRACT: "U.S. foreign policy enactments are more likely to reflect the views of the affluent public than the middle class. We analyze the factors associated with their success. Foreign policy proposals are usually introduced to the public after they are already on the government agenda and they are more likely to be enacted than proposals in other areas. Foreign policy proposals that promote globalism, such as foreign aid, military conflict, international organization involvement, and trade agreements, generate more support from the affluent and are especially likely to pass. Think tanks coalesce in support of these globalist policies; those they favor are more likely to pass. In line with populist critiques of American foreign policy, elite interests and affluent citizens largely succeed in advancing globalization and American international entanglements despite less support from the middle class."
