Poll: less than half of college students believe U.S. is most powerful country

A new poll revealed that about 3 in 10 American college students say China is more powerful than the U.S.

As Ethan Cai at Campus Reform reported, “The survey, conducted by College Pulse, collected responses from over 27,000 college students. Altogether, 8,394 respondents (30 percent) claimed that China, not the U.S., is the most powerful country in the world. China was the second-most selected nation in the poll, trailing only the U.S.”

“Although the U.S. won the plurality of votes,” Cai added, “it received just under half of the total responses (48 percent) from survey participants.”

Students also told Campus Reform in another interview that they trust the communist Chinese government over the Trump administration. Meanwhile, U.S. intelligence agencies have frequently warned against China’s threat to national security — both in economic and educational development.
