Fewer Americans View Russia As Critical Threat To US


Gallup has published a report showing that the number of Americans who view the Russian military as a critical threat to the US has fallen significantly since last year.

  • Gallup: “A majority of Americans, 51%, also view the military power of Russia as a critical threat, though this is down significantly from 59% a year ago. The decline may be related to the prolonged battle with Ukraine. Many military experts thought the Russian military would overwhelm Ukraine, but it has made gains only in limited parts of the country. Those gains have come at a heavy cost in Russian military personnel and equipment."
