For Most Voters, U.S. Is The Best Nation in the World

Most voters believe the United States is superior to other nations around the world, but suspect that creates higher expectations from other countries.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is the best nation in the world, a finding that is little changed from the last time this question was asked in October 2015. Twenty percent (20%) disagree, while 11% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
