The purpose of this research was to measure the attitudes of Thai students at Utah State University toward the American political system, favorably or unfavorably.

The method of this study was an opinion or attitude survey. Copies of the questionnaires were personally delivered to and collected from Thai students by the writer. Ninety-four questionnaires or 97.92 percent of the total ninety-six were returned

The conclusion of this study indicated that: Thai students' attitudes toward the American political system were more favorable than unfavorable. Moreover, the period of time spent in the United States caused little difference in change of their attitude. The respondents absolutely do not desire to change the Thai political system to the American system although they thought well of the American system.
