    Are you asking how many said the Eastern Bloc would crumble starting in 1989 and the Soviet Union would eventually dissolve in 1991/1992? If so, I have no idea. If you want, you can read what the CIA itself has to say about those predictions from the 70s and onward.

    One small exerpt:
    From the mid-1970s to the eve of Gorbachev's assumption of party leadership in the spring of 1985, the CIA portrayed a Soviet Union plagued by a deteriorating economy and intensifying societal problems. CIA products described the growing political tensions resulting from these failures, the prospect that sooner or later a Soviet leadership would be forced to confront these issues, and the uncertainty over what form this confrontation would take.​
