65% See Another 9/11 As Possible in Next 10 Years
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Eleven years ago today, thousands of Americans were murdered by radical Islamic terrorists, but despite the subsequent security precautions and the killing of Osama bin Laden, most adults in this country still think another 9/11-style attack is at least somewhat likely in the next 10 years.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of Americans believe another 9/11 might take place in this country in the next 10 years. Only 27% view a repeat of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 as unlikely. This includes 29% who see another 9/11 as Very Likely and just two percent (2%) who consider it not At All Likely.
