What are REAL Americans Afraid of? HINT: It’s NOT What Democrat Candidates are Afraid of!

To the anti-freedom socialist Democrat presidential candidates on stage this week, the fraud of global warming climate change or weather, something progressives think they can control by taking more individual freedoms away, is the greatest threat to mankind in general and Americans specifically.

“Climate change” is the item that the Democrat candidates fear the most — more than Islamic terrorism, Vladimir Putin or the Communist Chinese hacking U.S. Government computers or any other of the many problems in the world.

But what about real Americans? What are they afraid of?

Researchers at Chapman University conducted a new survey of 1,541 randomly sampled Americans and asked them to rate their fear level for 88 different fears across various areas of life.

So unless the Democrats are completely out of touch with the average (normal) Americans, one can assume that climate change or global warming (even though there has been no global warming in over 18 years) would be at or near the top of the list, correct?

Is it even in the top ten? How about the top 20?

What if I told you more Americans fear “reptiles,” “Obamacare,” and “gun control” more than global warming?

It’s true.

In fact, as you can see from the graphic from Chapman University below, “Corruption of Government Officials,” which just may include the kind of corruption that was standing on the Democrat debate stage on Tuesday, in the face of Hillary Clinton, is easily the biggest fear of Americans, with 58% of respondents reporting that they were “afraid” or “very afraid.” The number two fear, “Cyber-Terrorism” was a whopping 13.2% lower at 44.8% (Note: numbers add up higher than 100% since those polled could select more than one answer):


So more people — more real Americans — fear civil unrest, a tornado, bio-warfare, or identity theft than global warming/climate change, showing just how out-of-touch Democrats are with the rest of society.
