A Rasmussen Poll released on December 19, 2013 indicated that while a small plurality of Americans regard the Chinese Chang’e 3 moon landing as “bad” for the United States, the majority responded that it would either have no impact or did not have an opinion.

The numbers run thusly:

33 Percent of likely voters responded that the Chinese moon landing was bad for the United States.

6 percent of likely voters responded that it would be good for the United States.

45 percent responded that it would have no impact.

15 percent were not sure.

The news of the Chang’e 3 moon landing has received scant coverage in the American media and no response from either the Obama administration or NASA. Discussions of the implications of the moon landing have taken place in aerospace and some political circles, but there has been silence for the most part in the mainstream media. When the poll was taken, stories in the American media was dominated by the continuing traumas of Obamacare and a scandal involving a reality TV star.
