Americans’ Fear Of Terror Attack High: AP Survey


With fears about a future terrorist attack running high, many Americans wonder if the terrorists may be winning, says the Associated Press. Half of those surveyed in an AP-Ipsos survey said they have concerns that terrorists may be winning; one fifth felt strongly that is the case. More than 30 months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, two thirds of Americans have some concern that terrorists are recruiting faster than the U.S. can keep up, says the poll for AP by Ipsos-Public Affairs. “I think we’re twitching on the edge of Armageddon; a lot of people I work with feel the same way,” said Michael Miller, a 49-year-old software tester in Las Cruces, N.M.

Two thirds in the poll said it was likely terrorists would strike before the November elections. One third said an attack was likely at one of the political conventions this summer.
