A new CBS News poll finds Americans are not as worried about a possible war with the Communist Party as they are about China.
In the CBS poll released Tuesday, 44% of Americans said they are worried about war with Russia, 26% said they were worried about China, and 13% said it is just a question of time.
That is an 11-point drop from the CBS News survey released on Feb. 27, when 51% said war with a nation was a “great worry” and just 8% said a war was a great worry.
The CBS News Poll surveyed 1,000 adults from March 16-19, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
The poll was conducted by SurveyMonkey and SurveyMonker International, with the poll’s margin of accuracy of plus/minus 3.5 percentage points, the company said.
The survey was conducted before and after a U.N. Security Council vote to impose a travel ban on North Korea on Feb, 23.
The United States has said it will deploy cruise missiles against North Korea.
In February, the State Department suspended a U to North Korea trade mission, citing North Korea’s continued violation of a U.-N.
The State Department also said North Korea is a state sponsor of terrorism and has conducted a ballistic missile test that violated U.U.N., Security Council and U.K. sanctions resolutions.
On Monday, the U to China group issued a statement calling on China to immediately lift a ban on Chinese citizens traveling to North Korean territory.
China also recently signed a $3 billion deal to build a nuclear power plant in North Korea that will generate energy for China, according to China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency.
