Nearly 40 percent of likely U.S. voters named domestic political parties as America’s greatest enemy according to a new national phone and online survey from Rasmussen Reports.

Twenty-five percent said China is America’s biggest enemy, 20 percent said Russia. But 22 percent said Democrats are the biggest threat while 17 percent said Republicans are. North Korea and Iran came in with five percent and two percent respectively.

The numbers are slightly down, actually, from two years ago when 24 percent said Biden voters were America’s biggest enemy and 22 percent said Trump voters were.

Thirty-three percent of Republicans said Democrats are America’s biggest enemy while 26 percent of Democrats claim Republicans are the biggest enemy. Thirty-nine percent of unaffiliated voters view one of the two parties as America’s biggest enemy, with 21 percent saying Democrats are and 18 percent saying Republicans are.

Thirty-one percent of Democrats said Russia is America’s biggest enemy. Sixteen percent of Democrats said China. Those numbers are flipped among GOP voters, with 35 percent saying China is the biggest threat and 12 percent naming Russia.

Unaffiliated voters agreed with Republicans — 26 percent said China is the biggest threat and 15 percent said Russia.
