(GALLUP) Cyberterrorism is highest among critical threats to US

The following is an excerpt from Gallup News.

Americans are more likely to regard cyberterrorism as a “critical threat” to U.S. vital interests than to say this about 10 other international matters.

The development of nuclear weapons by Iran or by North Korea place second and third in Americans’ mentions of critical threats in the latest poll.

The findings are from Gallup’s World Affairs survey, conducted Feb. 1-23.

Concern about international terrorism ranks next, followed closely by China as a military and, separately, an economic power.

Smaller majorities see the Russia-Ukraine conflict, global warming and Russia’s military power as critical threats to U.S. vital interests.

Ranking at the bottom are the illegal entry of immigrants into the U.S. and the conflict between Taiwan and China.

Behind Partisan Lines

Republicans and Democrats share similar perspectives on the severity of some international threats, particularly cyberterrorism and the development of nuclear weapons by Iran and North Korea, while viewing others quite differently.

The largest differences are for China’s military and economic power and for immigration — all of which Republicans are much more likely to see as critical threats — and climate change, which Democrats are much more likely to consider a threat.
