More Voters View Cyberattack As Act of War

In the wake of the international WannaCry cyberattack, voters say cyberattacks from other countries do greater economic damage than military attacks do and believe more strongly than ever that such attacks should be seen as an act of war.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a major cyberattack on the United States by another country should be viewed as an act of war. That’s up from 57% in late 2014 after alleged attacks by North Korea and Iran and 55% in April 2013 following a cyberattack on South Korea. 

Only 17% now say such an attack should not be viewed as an act of war, but a sizable 21% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 15-16, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC . See methodology.
