The poll also revealed that Republicans not only are in favor of having the federal government reduce its involvement in soft power or foreign aid, but also nearly 41 percent of GOP voters would like to reduce the presence of American troops overseas, and 46 percent are keen to reduce the involvement of America in conflicts involving military forces.
