41% of Americans Expect Civil War within 5 Years, Poll Shows

Over 100 million Americans, 41% of the nation’s population, now believe that the United States will be torn apart by another civil war within the next five years, an alarming new poll has revealed.

The results of the shock poll, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, were published Thursday.

Interestingly, voters said they believe civil war is more likely to break out if Democrat President Joe Biden wins a second term in office after the November election.

Respondents said civil war would be less likely if President Donald Trump wins the presidential election.

“41% of Likely U.S. voters believe the United States is likely to experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, including 16% who consider such a scenario Very Likely,” the report states.

Less than half of the respondents, 49%, said they don’t think civil war is likely.

In its report on the poll, Rasmussen said:

“Such discussions got a boost after the new movie ‘Civil War’ made its debut as No. 1 at the box office last month.

“Thirty-seven percent (37%) of voters believe another civil war is more likely to happen if President Joe Biden wins this year’s election, while 25% think another civil war is more likely if former President Donald Trump wins.

“Thirty percent (30%) say who wins this year’s election will not make much difference in the likelihood of a civil war.”

That amounts to 106 million US adults saying civil war is on the horizon.

The survey comes against a backdrop of mounting leftist violence on U.S. college campuses, where pro-Hamas protestors clash with law enforcers, conservatives, some Jewish students, and others.

Rasmussen said the specter of civil war looms large this election year.

Americans now worry about a rerun of the 1861-1865 Civil War, which saw 11 southern states break away over the institution of slavery, ultimately ending in their defeat after four bloody years of war.

“The possibility that America could face another civil war soon is not too far-fetched for a lot of voters,” the pollsters said about their survey.

“Such discussions got a boost after the new movie ‘Civil War’ made its debut as number one at the box office last month.”

Alex Garland’s dystopian political action film “Civil War” remains a box office favorite.

The survey of 1,105 voters late last month found that women, younger adults, and non-white Americans were more concerned about a conflict breaking out.

Republican voters were more certain than Democrats that civil war would break out.

54 percent of GOP voters saw a civil war breaking out by 2029.

Similar polling has also revealed that large numbers of citizens want their states to separate from the Union.

According to a recent YouGov survey of 35,000 people, 36 percent of Alaskans want to call it a day and leave the union.

That’s a more popular movement than the 31 percent of Texans who want out.

Democrat-run California and New York are next in line to abandon ship, with 29 percent and 28 percent of residents favoring secession, respectively.

Oklahomans (28 percent), Nebraskans (25 percent), Georgians (25 percent), Floridians (24 percent), and Washingtonians (24 percent) are also eyeing the door.

At the other end of the spectrum is Connecticut, with just 9 percent of its relatively content residents seeking an out.

Larger states with distinct cultures and stronger go-it-alone economies generally lean toward secession more than others, the polling shows.

The Rasmussen survey of 1,105 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on April 21-23, 2024.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
