    As talk of another U.S.-North Korea summit heats up, voters now consider the nation less of a national security interest but aren’t confident the nuclear agreement between Kim Jong Un and President Trump will produce results.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters still consider the rogue nation a national security interest for the United States these days, but that’s down from 70% in March prior to the Trump-Kim meeting. Twenty-three percent (23%) disagree, while another 19% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on January 8-9, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
