What is National Security?
How do the American people currently view national security?  What do they expect from their federal government?  Does national security include the Covid-19 response?  What about disinformation or foreign governments that seek to inflame domestic differences?  Does the public see resources devoted to national security as affecting their daily lives? How can they discern which issues are of greater or lesser importance?
