In a recent poll conducted by Morning Consult, 73% of registered voters say that the U.S. should maintain an active role in the UN. A separate survey from the Pew Research Center similarly found that 58% of Americans hold a favorable view of the UN.

The stakes are simply too high to withdraw from the world's most important conversations - and the most significant global body.
