Most Will Be on the Lookout This Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Americans will have their eyes open this Thanksgiving holiday with the threat of terrorism in the air. A lot fewer plan to travel, too.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of American Adults say they will be more watchful for possible terrorist attacks this Thanksgiving weekend than they have been in the past. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% say their level of vigilance will be about the same. Despite the post-Paris threats made by radical Islamic terrorists, five percent (5%) say they will be less watchful this holiday weekend. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
