A new survey found that more than two-thirds of Americans think the Islamic State (ISIS) could attack the U.S. if the terror group is not defeated soon.

The poll was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates for Middle East expert and author Joel C. Rosenberg.

The results:

  • 68.1 percent said they fear ISIS will attack the U.S. unless it's defeated soon.
  • 41.2 percent said the U.S. and its allies are losing the war against ISIS, which is increasing the threat to the homeland. 33.1 percent said the coalition is winning.
  • 24.7 percent said more than 30 percent of Muslims living overseas support acts of terrorism against civilians.
  • 60 percent said the threat of Iran and ISIS gaining weapons of mass destruction is greater than climate change, refuting what former president Barack Obama said in 2014.

A report earlier this month claimed the White House is considering ramping up military action against ISIS in its capital of Raqqa, Syria.
