News You Really Need To See: “Republicans See Obama as More Imminent Threat Than Putin”

“Republicans See Obama as More Imminent Threat Than Putin”

“A third of Republicans believe President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States, outranking concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.  A Reuters/Ipsos online poll this month asked 2,809 Americans to rate how much of a threat a list of countries, organizations and individuals posed to the United States on a scale of 1 to 5, with one being no threat and 5 being an imminent threat.  The poll showed 34 percent of Republicans ranked Obama as an imminent threat, ahead of Putin (25 percent), who has been accused of aggression in the Ukraine, and Assad (23 percent). … Twenty-seven percent of Republicans saw the Democratic Party as an imminent threat to the United States, and 22 percent of Democrats deemed Republicans to be an imminent threat.”

Quickie analysis:  Somehow I doubt even Republican national security experts would agree with this assessment, but it does underscore how polarized American society has become along political lines.
