Almost three-fourths of American voters believe that the world will be less peaceful in 2018, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

In the poll:

  • 73 percent of American voters believe the world will be less peaceful in 2018.
  • 18 percent do not believe the world will be less peaceful.

Almost half of voters believe that a bright spot for peace exists in the Middle East.

  • 48 percent believe that a way can be found for Israelis and Palestinians to coexist.
  • 41 percent do not believe a way can be found.

Most voters in the poll believe 2018 will be a personally better year for them.

  • 58 percent of all voters believe 2018 will be better for them, while 38 percent do not share that belief.
  • 44 percent of Democrats say that 2018 will be worse for them — the only party, gender, education, age or racial group that had that opinion.

Overall, voters are optimistic about the economy, but some groups are pessimistic.

  • 52 percent of voters overall said the economy will improve in 2018, while 38 percent of voters disagree.
  • 64 percent of Democrats say the economy will be worse, while 22 percent believe it will improve.
  • 48 percent of women believe the economy will be worse, while 40 percent believe it will improve.
  • 61 percent of black voters believe the economy will worsen, while 28 percent believe it will get better.

Every other demographic group had a positive forecast for the economy.

However, only 33 percent of American voters are "very" or "somewhat" satisfied with how things are going in the U.S. and 67 percent are "somewhat" or "very" dissatisfied, according to the poll. 

The poll was conducted from Dec. 13-18 among 1,230 voters around the U.S., with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points, according to the poll.
