Survey finds majority of Americans believe another world war is likely within the next 5-10 years

According to a recent YouGov survey, most Americans believe that another world war will occur within the next five to 10 years. About 61 percent of survey respondents indicated that they view the likelihood of another world war as either “very likely” or “somewhat likely” within this timeframe. Additionally, approximately 18 percent of Americans expressed uncertainty regarding the possibility of another world war in the next five to 10 years.

Furthermore, the survey revealed that around 21 percent of Americans believe that it is “not very likely” or “not at all likely” for another world war to occur within the specified time frame. This sentiment is echoed by Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.), who criticized former President Trump for recent comments about NATO potentially setting the stage for another world war. Moskowitz highlighted Trump’s remarks about protecting European countries in NATO and warned of the potential consequences should Russia invade Europe.

In addition, the survey found that 53 percent of Americans believe that Western nations and their allies would emerge victorious in a conflict against Russia and its allies. Only about 11 percent of respondents predicted that Russia and its allies would prevail over the West and its allies. The YouGov survey, conducted from February 1 to 7 with 1,000 participants, has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
