There have been rumblings of warning signs from some observers for some time that the U.S. could get dragged into a civil war if it continues on its route of growing political and social division - concerns only amplified in the wake of the January 6 storming of the Capitol.

By now, the impression that a civil war could be brewing has spread to the general public, and as a new Gallup poll indicates, to a large extent. 

When looking at all adult U.S. citizens responding to the survey, 43 percent said they think that a civil war is at least somewhat likely in their country in the coming decade.
