According to Rasmussen Reports:

"Thirty-eight percent (38%) of U.S. voters are very concerned that Barack Obama will be tested with an international crisis in his first six months as president, as his running mate Joseph Biden has predicted.

Another 21% rank themselves somewhat concerned about such a crisis, while just 12% are not concerned at all, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Forty-three percent (43%) of male voters are very concerned that Obama will be tested in his first six months, compared to 33% of women. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Republicans have that level of concern, versus 15% of Democrats and 36% of unaffiliated voters (see full demographic crosstabs)."
