In episode 41 of the Mitchell Institute’s Aerospace Advantage podcast, Strategic Nuclear Deterrence: What are Americans Thinking?, the team delves into the realm of public opinion regarding one of the most consequential aspects of U.S. national security. As a democracy, public sentiment has a key bearing on future U.S. national security decisions. It’s crucial to know where the public stands on this issue given that all segments of the nuclear triad are set for modernization. Mitchell Institute, in collaboration with Seven Letter Insight, conducted a poll to better understand these dynamics. The results were both surprising and illuminating. Join us for a conversation that extends past the standard talking points normally heard surrounding nuclear deterrence.
