"Draagvlak" simply means support.

Presumably because the Dutch word "steun" is less appropriate in the context of policy support, preference is given to the word "draagvlak" here.
Good luck.

public support

a "draagvlak" is a support but in this case the literal meaning is not requested so "public support" is the right translation
