For the first time in decades, Americans are evenly divided when asked if the U.S. has the No. 1 military in the world.

A recent Gallup poll found that only 49% of Americans believe the U.S. has the best military — that’s the lowest percent recorded in the 23 years Gallup has been asking this question, and significantly lower than the 59% who said the U.S. is No. 1 one year ago, in February 2015.

And this is important to people: The Gallup poll found about two-thirds of Americans say the U.S. should be the No. 1 military in the world.

That only half of the population believes the U.S. is No. 1 might seem crazy given the size and scope of America’s military.
