  • Most Voters See Another Cold War Coming

    Most voters don’t want the United States to provide military assistance to Ukraine to help fight pro-Russian rebels there, perhaps in part because they feel more strongly than ever that the U.S.-Soviet Cold War is beginning to repeat itself.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 63% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is at least somewhat likely that the United States and Russia will return to a 1950s-like Cold War relationship over the next few years. That’s up 18 points from 45% in March and up 27 points from 36% in August 2013. Just 29% see a Cold War scenario as unlikely. This includes 21% who say it’s Very Likely the United States and Russia will return to a Cold War relationship and just four percent (4%) who think it’s Not At All Likely.

  • 38% Rate Obama Positively on National Security

    Despite the United States' growing involvement in headline-grabbing areas like Gaza and Ukraine, voters continue to give mediocre reviews to President Obama's handling of national security issues.

That's generally in line with findings for the past year. A year ago, Obama earned positives of 40% and a negative of 35% for his national security dealings.
