WASHINGTON, D.C. – According to an NBC News poll, “an overwhelming majority of Americans — 76 percent — are worried that the United States will become engaged in a major war in the next four years.”
Conducted with Survey Monkey, the respondents went on to say that N. Korea was the main threat. The entire story can be seen here, but we include key excerpts below:
The number has jumped 10 points since February, when 66 percent of Americans said they were worried about military conflict.
North Korea has emerged as a flashpoint for the current administration, as tensions have rapidly escalated since President Donald Trump took office.

“There is a chance we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea,” Trump said.
The administration has said all options remain on the table.
