The Palestinian move for statehood recognition at the United Nations has re-ignited the Republicans’ anti-U.N. fervor in Congress. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) both introduced bills to defund the international body. But Mark Leon Goldberg over at U.N. Dispatch notes that this view is way outside the mainstream of American voters.

Sixty-four percent said the U.S. should pay its U.N. and peacekeeping operation dues in full and on time.
