The poll of likely voters found that 51 percent consider radical Muslims the biggest threat to the U.S., 13 percent think the tea party is a bigger threat, and another 13 percent point to political and religious extremists as the greatest danger. Six percent say local militia groups pose the biggest threat and 2 percent cite the Occupy Wall Street movement as the main threat.
