NPR Examines Kaiser Family Foundation Poll On Americans’ Knowledge About Foreign Aid Funding

NPR: Guess How Much Of Uncle Sam’s Money Goes To Foreign Aid? Guess Again!
“…In December, the Kaiser Family Foundation polled 1,505 people. Only 1 in 20 knew the right answer: less than 1 percent of the $4 trillion federal budget goes to foreign aid. The average respondent estimated that 26 percent went toward assisting other countries. … Even coming up with a definition of ‘foreign aid’ is tough. So we spoke to five specialists to soak up some foreign aid smarts…” (Rutsch, 2/10).
