The article is devoted to the study of the most probable variants of developments around the New START Treaty, through which various groups of the American ruling elite are trying to achieve their global strategic goals. Special attention is paid to the study of the factor of inter-party interaction, which predetermined the achievement of a «fragile consensus» between the Republican and Democratic parties on the issue of complementarity of the program of modernization of nuclear triad and arms control process.
