56% Think Humans May Live on Other Planets in 100 Years

One hundred years from now, 56% of American adults believe it is likely that some humans from Earth will be living on other planets. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 31% disagree and 13% are not sure.

Men are more confident than women that humans will live on other planets. However, there are no significant generational differences on this question  (see crosstab results).

Data released earlier showed that 37% of American adults believe there is life elsewhere in the galaxy. Eleven percent (11%) believe aliens may be living on earth today.

And, on a more pessimistic note, 42% believe the human race may be destroyed within 100 years.
