Terrorism Tops List of Voter Concerns
A New York Times/CBS News poll has found that terrorism has eclipsed the economy as voters' top pick for the biggest issue facing America.
The poll said Americans are more fearful about the likelihood of another terrorist attack than at any other time since the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001.
More than four in 10 Americans -- 44% -- believe an attack is "very" likely to happen in the next few months. And 70% say that ISIS is a major threat to America's security.
Nearly 60% of people are "very" concerned about the threat of terrorism against Americans committed by elements entering the U.S. from other countries. And 63% are "very" concerned about the threat of terrorism against Americans committed by people currently living in the U.S. who are inspired by foreign extremists.
Most Americans -- 57% -- disapprove of Barack Obama's handling of terrorism, with 70% saying the fight against ISIS is going badly.
