Moscow, Russia: Americans consider Russia as greatest enemy, says, Gallup International poll that was conducted between 8 to 11 February 2015. Moreover, nearly half of Americans see Russian military power as threat to U.S.
According to latest Gallup International poll, North Korea is no more considered as greatest threat to United States rather it is now Russia—a greatest threat to US people. Two years ago, only 2% of Americans named Russia, but that increased to 9% in 2014 as tensions between Russia and the U.S. increased, and now sits at 18%.
As Russia has risen in the “enemy” rankings, the two countries that topped the list in the previous three updates — China in 2014 and Iran in 2011 and 2012 — have slipped. The percentage mentioning China has dropped eight points over the past year, to 12%, and the percentage mentioning Iran has fallen seven points to 9%.

Americans have also become significantly more likely to view Russia's military power as a critical threat to the U.S. -- 49% now hold this view, compared with 32% a year ago.
