USSC Research Director Jared Mondschein and Research Editor Victoria Cooper, co-authors of the USSC's latest polling report, are interviewed about its key findings.

Mondschein tells SBS News in Depth that about two-thirds of respondents across Australia, the United States and Japan are willing to pay more for a phone not made in China, which suggests "there is some interest and willingness for people to, at least rhetorically, pay more for strategic competition." Cooper notes that in the United States a lot of recent bipartisan legislation "has been framed in terms of competitiveness with China because it resonates with both Republicans and Democrats in Congress."
