Just 31% Say America Will Be On Top At End of the Century: Rasmussen


A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 31% of U.S. voters think the United States will be the most powerful nation in the world at the end of the 21st century. Thirty-five percent (35%) disagree and 34% are not sure.

These numbers correlate closely with findings among American adults at the beginning of the year and in March.

At the beginning of 2009, 37% of Americans said the United States would be the world’s most powerful nation at the end of the century. By March, that number had fallen slightly to 34%.

Men are slightly more confident than women about America’s future status. Democrats are more positive than Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party.

Conservatives are twice as likely as liberals to believe that the United States will not be number one by the end of the century. Middle income Americans are less confident than those who earn both more and less than they do.
