The Sunday Survey: Americans Much More Peaceful than Russians

Back in November, we reported on poll data showing that, contrary to the absurd propaganda spewed by the Kremlin, Americans are significantly less warlike than Russians.

Now, here's more proof from the same polling agency, World Public Opinion:

The first chart shows that the percentage of American who favor a treaty prohibiting attacks on satellites is far higher (20%) than the percentage of Russians who favor such a treaty:



The second chart shows that the percentage of Americans who support self-restraint in placing weapons in space is also much higher (16%) than the percentage of Russians who favor such restraint.

Another interesting feature of these polls is that while 99% of Americans who were asked the question were able to to answer, only 76% of Russians could give an opinion to the first question and only 88% could respond to the second (those unable to respond being reflected by a large white gap in the bar graph for Russia).
