Most Still See Radical Islamic Terrorism As Serious Threat

President Trump's belief that radical Islamic terrorism is a threat to America is one of the primary reasons behind his temporary freeze on refugees and visas. Most voters continue to recognize that threat and believe the United States is still at war with radical Islam.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 80% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Islamic terrorism a serious threat to the United States, including 54% who consider it a Very Serious one. Nineteen percent (19%) feel radical Islamic terrorism is not a serious threat, but that includes just three percent (3%) who say it is Not At All Serious.
