A Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group poll issued this week found that the majority of likely voters think it is improper for the government to invest taxpayer money in businesses connected to China.

One of the survey questions goes: “Do you think it’s appropriate for the United States government or any state government to invest taxpayer money with companies or funds with ties to China?”

74.1 percent of respondents believed it is inappropriate for the federal or state governments to invest taxpayer funds in businesses or funds with ties to China, while 25.9 percent thought it was OK.

As 64.8 percent of Democrats, 81.5 percent of Republicans, and 75.2 percent of independents disagree that the government should invest taxpayer money in such enterprises, there appears to be bipartisan agreement that such action is improper.

The survey has a +/- 2.9 percent margin of error and was conducted on February 22 and 23, 2023, among 1,084 likes general election voters.

That coincides with a separate Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group study on China that was published this week and indicated that 76.3 percent of probable voters agreed that the United States should halt construction on Chinese-owned property that is close to American military sites.
