Voters strongly believe the coronavirus is a major threat to America’s national security, and most think our enemies are likely to exploit the U.S. government’s focus on the disease.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 90% of Likely U.S. Voters consider the coronavirus a serious national security threat to the United States, with 57% who say it’s a Very Serious one. Just eight percent (8%) say it’s a not very or Not At All Serious threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
