British Mass Perceptions of the Anglo-American Special Relationship
Jorgen Rasmussen and James M. McCormick analyze the British public's views of Anglo-American relations and find the "special relationship" to be largely a myth. The British public, in contrast to the political elite, does not feel any affinity with the United States. As a result, firm support for U.S. international policies can prove costly in domestic popularity for a prime minister.
