Most Americans Concerned About U.S.-China Trade War

The United States is setting the stage for a trade war with China over the Trump administration’s increased tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of Chinese imports, something nearly two-thirds of Americans are concerned about.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of American Adults are at least somewhat concerned about a possible U.S. trade war with China, including 32% who are Very Concerned. Just 34% are not concerned about an impending trade war, with 11% who are Not At All Concerned. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
