Rhetoric between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un have heated up in the past week. An increasing number of voters think the North Koreans are eager for a war but they remain divided about U.S. intervention.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the North Korean government wants a war with the United States, unchanged from July, and up slightly from 38% in March. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree, compared to 30% in March, while 21% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here).
