Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
A poll was conducted of 354 Chinese Americans who were chosen at random nationwide by from a surname list.
They were asked a series of questions about their attitudes toward China and their views on China and US-China Relations.
Should Taiwan and China maintain the “One China” policy or let Taiwan decide?
Nearly half (48%) of Chinese-Americans say that the “One China” policy should be maintained and that China and Taiwan should be encouraged to work out their differences.
Only 14% of the General Public agree with them.
Two times as many people in the general public think that Taiwan should decide (77%). The Chinese-Americans wanted to turn things over to a vote at a percentage of (38%).
Americans are used to voting. Chinese-Americans are used to voting. But perhaps the Chinese-Americans can also see the value in negotiations as opposed to referendums.
What do you think?
These survey results were taken from a poll conducted by the Committee of 100.
The Committee of 100 is a national, nonpartisan organization composed of prominent American citizens of Chinese descent. The members of this group pool their resources to address important issues that concern the Chinese/American community but, Imho, more importantly, foster better US-Greater China relations.
Recently, this group asked the polling firm ZOGBY to conduct an extensive survey of American Attitudes Toward China.
They polled the General Population (General Public) as well as Chinese Americans. Business leaders, Opinion leaders and Congressional staffers, subsets of the general public were also polled.
In keeping with the Committee of 100 ideas, I hope it will create discussion and be used to better understand U.S.-China relations and help those concerned to formulate recommendations on how to improve relationships between these two great countries.
