Voters Not Overly Hopeful About Trump/North Korea Summit

President Trump has agreed to meet soon with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, the first time a U.S. president has ever met with the leader of the rogue communist regime. But voters here are skeptical that the meeting will lessen the threat posed by North Korea.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is unlikely the meeting between Trump and Kim will result in a slowing or stopping of North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, with 23% who say it’s Not At All Likely. Thirty-eight percent (38%) disagree and believe the meeting is likely to make North Korea stand down, but that includes just 12% who say it’s Very Likely.
