Rasmussen — 52% Say U.S. Not Safer Today Than Before 9/11 Attacks, Highest Level Yet

Confidence in America’s efforts in the War on Terror has fallen again this month, and, following the unsuccessful terrorist bombing attempt in New York’s Times Square, more voters than ever now believe the nation is not safer today than it was before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 31% now believe the United States is safer today than it was before 9/11, down seven points from last month and the lowest level of confidence measured in over three years of regular tracking.

Fifty-two percent (52%) say the country is not safer today, up from 42% a month ago and the highest level measured over the past three years. Democrats are almost evenly divided on whether or not the country is safer today. Most Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party believe the country is not safer.
