Democrats More Afraid of Global Warming Than ISIS

Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans.

In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat -+ a partisan difference of 13 points.

Eighty percent of Republicans also cite “Islamic extremist groups like al Qaeda” as a major threat to the United States compared to 69 percent of Democrats.

Republicans also trump Democrats in citing North Korea’s nuclear program, China’s emergence as a world power, Iran’s nuclear program, and the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians as a threat to the United States.

The only threat that both parties agree on is the growing tensions between Russia and its neighbors, cited by both at 54 percent.
