A strong majority of Americans believe that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is good for the U.S., according to the latest Pew Research survey.

However, though 56 percent overall are positive about NAFTA, 54 percent of Republicans think it's bad for the U.S., saying the trade pact benefits Mexico more, according to Pew's research.

Other results, according to Pew's survey:

  • 33 percent overall think NAFTA is bad for the U.S.
  • 46 percent overall think NAFTA benefits Mexico and the U.S. evenly.
  • 30 percent overall think NAFTA benefits Mexico more.
  • 13 percent overall think NAFTA benefits the U.S. more.
  • 58 percent of conservative Republicans think it's bad for the U.S.
  • 48 percent of moderate Republicans think NAFTA is bad for the U.S.

The more educated Americans polled higher in approval of NAFTA; 70 percent of graduate students think it's good, while 54 percent of high school graduates or less approve of it, according to Pew.

Pew conducted telephone interviews Oct. 25-30 among a national sample of 1,504 adults, 18 years of age or older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia with a sampling error of 2.9 points.
