18PVS-15 on Aug 1, 2018

Political Group Survey: the PVS survey question on cutting defense
Source: PVS Survey
Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support reducing defense spending?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads." Also see the related Christian Coalition question on grid security and on the 2016 AFA question on Homeland Security.
