Many Fear Personal Fallout from U.S.-China Trade Spat

As President Trump continues fighting China over its unfair trade practices, Americans remain worried, and a sizable number fear that it will impact them personally.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of American Adults are at least somewhat concerned about a possible U.S. trade war with China, including 30% who are Very Concerned. Thirty-four percent (34%) don’t share that concern, with 14% who are Not At All Concerned. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
