[b]Washington, D.C. 6 May ([/b] In February this year, the most widely used opinion survey company, Public Agenda, was commissioned by America’s foremost foreign policy institute Council of Foreign Affairs, with the assistance of the Ford Foundation, to do a nation-wide survey to get the opinion of Americans on 25 different issues one of which was the Bush administration’s foreign policy plank of creating democracies abroad.
