CNN/ORC Poll: 68 Percent Call ISIS 'Very Serious' Foreign Threat

By    |   Wednesday, 22 Apr 2015 05:32 PM

Americans believe the militant jihadist Islamic State group (ISIS) is more of a threat than any other foreign foe, including Iran, Russia, North Korea and China, a new poll finds.

The CNN/ORC survey, released Wednesday, shows 68 percent of respondents list ISIS as a "very serious threat," while 39 percent say that about Iran, 32 percent fear North Korea, 25 percent think Russia's the biggest threat and 18 percent pick China.

But nearly 9 in 10 see ISIS as at least a moderately serious threat, the survey finds.

Unlike most other issues, politics doesn't play into the mix: 68 percent of Democrats, 79 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of independents say ISIS is a very serious threat.

Party politics, however, fueled other findings related to a tentative deal with Iran, reached April 2, and facing a June 30 deadline for finalization.

The poll shows:
  • 53 percent of Republicans see Iran as a very serious threat compared with 38 percent of independents and 29 percent of Democrats.
  • 53 percent of all respondents favor an Iran deal that would ease some economic sanctions in exchange for major restrictions on its nuclear program and more international inspections; 43 percent oppose such an agreement.
  • Among those who see Iran as a very serious threat, 56 percent oppose such a deal; of those who see Iran as a slight threat or no threat at all, 66 percent favor the deal.
  • 61 percent of Americans say the United States should take military action if Iran violated such a deal.
  • 48 percent approve of how President Barack Obama is handling the nation's relationship with Iran, while 48 percent disapprove. The party breakdown on the question is 79 percent approval by Democrats, and 77 percent disapproval by Republicans.

The poll has a plus or minus margin of error of 3 percentage points.
