Nationally, 31% of all likely voters say a second civil war in the next five years is either “very likely” (9%) or “somewhat likely” (22%) – but, 15% of blacks consider it “very likely” and 29% say it’s “somewhat likely.”

Compared to all voters, a slightly higher percentage of other minorities (34%) also say civil war is at least somewhat likely. Of those, 10% think civil war is very likely, while 24% say it’s only somewhat likely.

White voters are the least concerned about the prospect of civil war, with 38% saying it’s “not at all likely,” compared to only 22% of blacks and 25% of other minorities. Only 7% of white voters view an impending civil war as “very likely,” while another 20% consider it somewhat so.

 

The survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters was conducted November 18-19, 2019. It has a margin of sampling Error, +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
