No, there is no way to prove that the governments intentions are always good when influencing foreign elections.

@9HBCXK2Transhumanist from Georgia answered…1yr

Yes, but as a means to obtain what is best for US National security interest.

@9H9SQKDDemocrat from Ohio answered…1yr

No has that can lead to the problems we are facing today with Russia meddling we did it to them in the 60s and now they are doing it today

@Breanna-CarterWomen’s Equality from Texas answered…1yr

We don't want foreign influence in our politics, so it just stands to reason that we would stay out of other nations' elections.

@9H4X266Communist from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

No, any tampering in foreign elections sets the precedent that foreign tampering in any elections, including ours, is fair game. We should not tamper with foreign elections and foreign forces should not tamper with ours.

@9GRWB5DDemocrat from California answered…1yr

Yes, but only with open declarations to promote fair democratic elections

@9GPNX7PWorking Family from Kansas answered…1yr

Yes, so long as the influence is not illegal and allows for the fair completion of the legal voting process in that country

@9GNV8JRVeteran from Indiana answered…1yr

Not officially but any advantage we can create we should. All other countries do.

No, unless the citizens request help from a coup d'état, much like what the current US president is doing.

@9FMN49ZWorking Family from Minnesota answered…1yr

And then we bark when they try to influence ours. Hypocrisy in its highest form.

@9F9YPRJRepublican from Illinois answered…1yr

No, we should not attempt to influence foreign elections if we do not want foreign interference in our own

@9MN3LT9Libertarian from Texas answered…1yr

Only if the government is not a constitutional republic or democracy. Direct democracy

@9LJL4D7Libertarianfrom Maine  answered…1yr

It seems unwise to insert ourselves into another sovereign country’s affairs to directly affect their public opinion , but it is unjustifiable to directly interfere in their processes.

@9H74CWXRepublican from Minnesota answered…1yr

What is "influence? Voter fraud - no Promote a foreign leader more inline with U.S. policy - yes

@9F85RNLDemocrat from New York answered…1yr

Just like how people wouldn't want foreign powers meddling with our election, we also wouldn't want them to do the same thing

No, the United States should have no influence over other countries, and neither should any other countries be trying to influence other countries.

@9DT72B3Independent from Michigan answered…1yr

No. If we rant and rave about other countries trying to influence our elections, we should practice what we preach!

@9DSH5BQPeace and Freedom from Nebraska answered…1yr

Only if a country requests our help in providing free and fair elections in their country.

@9DS3KV3Democrat from North Carolina answered…1yr

Yes, but only those of adversaries, and only if able to do so without getting caught.

@9DPRV2CGreen from Utah answered…1yr

No, the US shouldn't attempt to influence a country's elections outside of our diplomatic efforts. Propaganda efforts, while often effective, are an immoral means to an end.

@9DNB96QGreen from Kansas answered…1yr

We can influence their policies but not their elections. We also should move towards a global effort rather than individual nation states.

@9ZHK8WFRepublican from Virginia answered…5 days

No. As a practical matter, our efforts have been counterproductive and have empowers George Soros and his progressive allies inimical to American interests.

@9ZH9V8FRepublican from Florida answered…6 days

It is ridiculous to think we are not going to influence elections or other domestic issues in countries of interest. As an example, on our back door step, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Colombia and Mexico.

@9ZH8FRXGreen from Kentucky answered…6 days

No, unless there is strong evidence they are a clear threat or working to undermine the US.

Yes, but to educate public opinion instead of influencing it and not to tamper with a fair voting process.

@9ZBP62GWomen’s Equality from California answered…2wks

Yes, but only to influence environmental protection, such as what has happened in Brazil and with the Amazon rainforest and its lack of protection.

@nunuhyozeRepublican from Indiana answered…2mos

No, the US Government needs to ensure election integrity at home before intervening in elections abroad.

@9YRD3JJRepublican from Colorado answered…2mos

Yes, if necessary for the interests of our national security

@Dim-StarkRepublican from Arizona answered…2mos

No, because while I understand wanting to address security concerns and protect countries from human rights violations, there is rarely one "good", clear-cut side in a war or in an election. Some examples of this would be the Spanish Civil War, WWII (particularly the Russian-German conflict).

@9Y99532Republican from Alabama answered…3mos

No, and we should safeguard our elections from outside influence.
