Voters have more faith today that the United States will remain the world’s top superpower.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters now think the United States will still be the most powerful nation in the world at the end of the 21st
century, up from 33% in March 2016 and
27% at the end of 2014. Just 24% now disagree, down significantly from 48% three years ago. Thirty-six percent (36%) are not sure what the United States’ status will be at the end of the century. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on September 18-19, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
