To the right is an interesting read that was penned by William Lydgate, editor of the Gallup Poll, who compared various opinion surveys that were taken shortly after the close of W.W. II with the ones that were created just a year later.
The 1945 poll revealed that the American public generally looked forward to friendly relations with the Soviet Union, shared remarkably high hopes for world peace and believed deeply that the United Nations would be responsible for the creation of a better world. However, the 1946 poll measured an enormous drop in this sunny disposition:
"Within one year after VJ-Day, the Gallup Poll was finding that almost nobody thought Russia would co-operate with us; that fewer than half the voters in the country were satisfied with the progress of the United Nations; and, most melancholy fact of all, that two out of every three (65%) said that they thought the United States would find itself in another war within 25 years."
