The economy has become the defining issue for America’s conservatives, with many Americans now thinking of the country’s economic problems as more of a national security issue than a human rights issue.
And as a result, economic nationalism is gaining ground on the right as voters increasingly view the economy as a national priority.
A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows that as much as 30 percent of Republican voters now see the economy and jobs as more important to national security than human rights.
That’s a significant change from the 19 percent who said the same about the economy last year, but the share of the GOP electorate who see the country as more sensitive to national and global security than economic issues is still at a record low.
A Pew Research Center survey released last week found that Americans still overwhelmingly support the right of the U.S. to protect itself from external threats, with the largest share of Republican respondents in that poll saying they believe the U of S. should be able to protect its borders and protect its citizens from the threats of terrorists and the spread of nuclear weapons.
But that support for the U’s right to protect foreign countries has dropped sharply in recent years.
In 2012, a full 57 percent of Republicans thought the U had a right to defend itself from the world, including the U., Russia and China.
That number fell to 41 percent in 2017, to 38 percent in 2020 and to 34 percent in 2025.
The number of Republicans who said they opposed the U.’s right to attack other countries rose from 34 percent to 42 percent over the same period.
And even as many Republicans were still deeply skeptical of the military’s ability to defeat a nuclear-armed China, the share who said that the U should be “extremely worried” about China rose from 31 percent to 36 percent over that period.
What does economic nationalism have to do with the U?
According to a recent NBC News poll, economic conservatives have become less likely to support President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy, which includes calls to end free trade and immigration policies.
A majority of Republicans, 51 percent, now say that economic nationalism, rather than national security, is more important.
In contrast, a majority of Democrats, 52 percent, say the same of economic nationalism.
And more than half of Democrats believe the policies advocated by the U, and not the U itself, should be the top priority for U.s. policy.
So is economic nationalism a threat to the U.?
Some conservatives believe it is.
The American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, issued a report in June that found that economic nationalist candidates would likely lose seats in the 2020 congressional elections if they lost to Republican incumbent Sens.
Cory Gardner and Shelley Moore Capito in a primary election.
The group said the loss of seats in Congressional races to economic nationalists would put the GOP’s national security agenda at risk, and that economic nationalists are likely to “hold their noses” and support Republican policies in the general election.
But the EIU also pointed out that the economic nationalism of economic conservatives has always been in the mainstream.
The EIU’s analysis, which relied on a wide range of polls, found that the vast majority of Americans think economic nationalism has some merit.
They also found that support among Republicans and conservatives has risen over time.
In the NBC/WSJ/Marster poll, 56 percent of voters supported economic nationalism as the top issue in a general election in 2020, compared with 30 percent in the 2014 survey.
That means that economic conservatism has grown as a major issue in American politics over the past several years, even as other political issues, like abortion rights and the role of religion in American life, have remained relatively unchanged.
How has the economy affected your life?
When you were younger, did you think that your life would have changed dramatically because of the recession?
When I was young, I didn’t think my future would have been the same as it is now.
I think that I would have had a much different life.
When you’re older, do you still see your life as the same?
Yes, I still think it will change dramatically.
And it will happen in the same way that other issues change.
What is your view of how much economic growth is necessary?
In terms of the economy, I think we need to grow it more.
But we also need to deal with the challenges that come with it.
That is what the president has said.
He has said that he will not raise taxes to stimulate the economy.
And he has said the United States is not a debtor nation.
Is economic nationalism harming the U?’
Economic nationalism is not really a problem.
People are saying, look, we are in a globalized economy.
I do think that our economy is in a very precarious position right now.
What about foreign policy?
The president and the Republican Party have embraced a lot of hard-line economic nationalism and foreign policy views.
But as the economy has grown and as
