Americans Look into the Crystal Ball: What is Likely to Happen in the Next 10 Years?

May 9, 2006:
A new Harris Poll finds that about half of all U.S. adults think it is likely or very likely that there will be a major new war involving many American soldiers (52%) or a major terrorist attack like 9/11 in the United States (49%) in the next 10 years.

Slightly fewer adults (45%) think that it is likely or very likely that Social Security benefits will be eliminated or sharply reduced, while slightly more than one-third (35%) think it likely or very likely that we will see a woman become president.

Approximately one in six (16%) thinks it is likely or very likely that there will be a stock market crash like the one that happened in 1929.
