Few Surprised By Collapse of North Korea Talks

Heading into the U.S.–North Korean summit, just 8% of voters believed  a deal would be reached for the U.S. to lift economic sanctions against North Korea in exchange for North Korea shutting down a key nuclear weapons facility. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found another 38% thought such a deal was at least somewhat likely.

There was a fair amount of interest in the story as 62% of voters were at least somewhat following the news coverage.

Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters consider North Korea to be a Very Significant Threat to the United States. Democrats see it as a bigger threat than Republicans or Independents (see crosstab results).

Eighty-eight percent (88%) recognize that the Korean War fought in the 1950s was never formally ended. Of that group, 84% thought it would be at least somewhat important to formally end the war.
