The Convention of States Action poll, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group, showed that 76.3% of likely American voters answered "Yes" to the question: "In light of the Chinese spy balloon, do you think the United States should put a freeze on any construction on or deliveries to/from Chinese owned property near U.S. military installations?"
When broken down by political party, Republicans are far more likely than Democrats to favor ceasing activities at Chinese-owned properties at 89% to 64%.
The poll was conducted Feb. 22–23 among 1,084 likely general election voters, with a 2.9% margin of error.
National security concerns about Chinese entities purchasing land near U.S. military bases has led lawmakers in Texas, North Dakota and Florida to consider bans on the practice.
