A new Rassmussen Poll found that 42% of Americans think a Civil War will happen in the next 5 years.
Most voters fear that political violence is coming from opponents of the presidentâ€™s policies, just as they did in the second year of Barack Obamaâ€™s presidency, and nearly one-in-three think a civil war is next.
Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say itâ€™s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, with 11% who say itâ€™s Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say itâ€™s Not At All Likely.

Democrats (37%) are more fearful than Republicans (32%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (26%) that a second civil war is at hand.
