Iran is considered the top threat to America by nearly one-third of all voters, according to a new poll.

In a dramatic jump from just one month ago, 32 percent of respondents in a Rasmussen Reports survey identified the Islamic republic as the foreign country they were most concerned about. In September, that figure was 22 percent.

After Iran, 19 percent of all voters say North Korea is the main threat to U.S. national security. China is third at 14 percent. Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Russia also were mntioned by respondents, but none broke into double figures.\
