Contributing sentiments towards policy:

60% : To meet it, the United States must invest enormously in education and emerging technologies -- the very investments that military spending will sooner or later crowd out.
51% : This influence is especially intense in Congress, where many districts rely on military spending and where legislators feel the weight of the more than $100 million per year that the defense industry lavishes on lobbying.
50% : As Mandy Smithberger at the Project on Government Oversight has noted, more than a dozen members of the Biden administration -- including his top Asia adviser at the National Security Council and the official leading the Pentagon's China strategy review -- have ties to the Center for a New American Security, which according to a report by the Center for International Policy received more funding from defense contractors between 2014 and 2019 than any other think tank the group analyzed.
49% : Early reporting suggests that his administration's first budget, which is expected later this spring, may not reduce military spending at all.
36% : As a result of Occupy, Black Lives Matter and populist political campaigns by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, the days when a Democratic president could easily appoint a Treasury secretary from Goldman Sachs seem to be over.
