Intelligence officials say there's no evidence to suggest ISIS is plotting a large-scale, 9/11-type attack on the U.S.

Yet many members of Congress say that ISIS is a major threat to the United States.

Given those warnings, along with some alarmist media coverage, it should come as no surprise nearly half of the country thinks the U.S. is in greater danger of a major terrorist attack now than it was before Sept. 11.

Many intelligence analysts would say that's an overreaction. See what they have to say in this Newsy video.
