Fifty-seven percent said they were “very concerned,” while 27 percent said they were “somewhat concerned” that the exchange would pose threats in the future.
While the poll showed some partisan differences, 77 percent of Democrats said they were concerned that more hostages would be taken. Forty-five percent were “very concerned” while 32 percent were “somewhat concerned.”
