Is ISIS a bigger threat than global warming?

Pew Research has a new report showing more Democrats rank climate change as a major threat - over Islamic extremists like ISIS and al Qaeda.

Take a look:

 

Partisan Differences in Views of Global Threats

 

From Pew:

Republicans are more likely than Democrats and independents to see Islamic extremist groups, Iran’s nuclear program, China’s emergence as a world power and the Israel-Palestinian conflict as major threats to the U.S. On the other hand, global climate change registers for Democrats as among the greatest threats to the U.S. (68% major). By comparison, just 25% of Republicans see global climate change as a major threat to the U.S.

 

Also of note - Tea Party folks are more likely to rank Islamic militancy as a greater threat than other Republicans.
