33% Support Creating a National ‘Space Force’

A proposal has been made to create a national “Space Force” that would be the sixth branch of the U.S. armed forces. While just one-in-three voters support this proposal, half see space as key to national security.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 33% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the creation of a national Space Force, while 40% are opposed. A sizable 27% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
