New Snap Poll: Would Clinton or Trump be better at foreign policy? Here’s what international relations scholars think.

In October, we launched our ninth snap poll and asked IR scholars about the foreign policy implications of a potential Clinton or Trump presidency. Overwhelmingly, IR scholars expect a Trump presidency to negatively affect U.S. relations with its allies — and damage U.S. credibility with Russia and China. By contrast, the scholars believe a Clinton presidency would have little impact on U.S. relations with either allies or adversaries. Read more on the Monkey Cage at the Washington Post.

Snap Poll III: Who Will Make the Best Foreign Policy President?

TRIP launched its eighth snap poll of U.S. international relations scholars in early February.  We asked the experts about the most important foreign policy issues facing the United States today and which presidential candidate they thought would most effectively manage these challenges.  These results shed light on the 2016 presidential campaign, terrorism and the Middle East, the Zika virus, and other major topics.  We published the main findings from this snap poll in Foreign Policy, and you can interact with all the data on our visualization dashboard.

 Why are scholars more skeptical of war than the American public?

TRIP's research suggests that the American public is far more hawkish than international relations scholars, regardless of political ideology. Check out Michael Horowitz's and Idean Saleyhan's article on the use of force, as well as Vox's article about why scholars and the public disagree on war and whether we should be worried about the divide.
