WASHINGTON, D.C. — 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.
