What are the reverse numbers?

Part of me thinks we really don't want to know what the numbers are the other way around.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of Americans believe the United States should provide military assistance to Germany if it is attacked. Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree, and 14% aren’t sure.

Americans were asked specifically whether the United States should provide military assistance to a country when it is attacked and then read a list of 18 countries around the globe that are regularly in the news. Germany is one of only five countries that most Americans are willing to defend militarily.

Japan did a little worse but still came in sixth. Forty-six percent (46%) say America should provide assistance to the island nation if it is attacked, but 41% oppose such aid. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.
Once again; time for the Representative Republic to bring its forces home from the nations it owes money to. WWII was a long time ago.
