43% Say North Korea Thirsty for War with U.S.

Attitudes toward North Korea are little changed despite the increasingly heated rhetoric between the United States and the rogue communist regime. But voters are less supportive these days of direct military action against North Korea. 

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the North Korean government wants a war with the United States, unchanged from July, and up slightly from 38% in March. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree, compared to 30% in March, while 21% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here).
