A second civil war is coming, said almost a third of voters in a Rasmussen poll.

About 1,000 likely voters were surveyed in the poll and the results, which were released Wednesday, reflected a sense of unease among participants who feared that political violence was likely to arise from opponents of President Donald Trump's policies, USA Today reported.

The poll found that 31 percent of probable voters thought that a second civil war could occur in the U.S. within the next five years.

And while half the participants consider a second civil war unlikely, 59 percent of all voters are concerned that those opposed to Trump’s policies will resort to violence.

Furthermore, 37 percent of Democrats are fearful of a coming civil war, while 32 percent of Republicans share in those concerns.

Media coverage is another cause for concern among voters, with 53 percent expressing concerns that those critical of the media’s coverage of Trump will resort to violence.

Similar fears were expressed in the second year of Barack Obama's presidency, according to the poll.

Among issues seeing divisiveness is Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

Backlash against the administration arose when it emerged that over 2,000 children were separated from their families at the border over a six-week period earlier this year amid Trump's policy, Time noted.

Since then several White House officials have faced public confrontation from opponents of Trump's policies, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders who was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia recently.
