Confidence! 79% Expect New Terror Attacks

This outreach thing to the "Muslim world" is really reaping dividends, isn't it? Maybe it's time for Obama to put down the golf clubs for five minutes and take a look at a problem that will drag him down faster than the lousy economy.
A Nigerian Muslim’s attempt to blow up an airliner landing in Detroit on Christmas Day has Americans much more concerned about the dangers of another terrorist attack.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 79% of U.S. voters now think it is likely there will be another terrorist attack in the United States in the next year. That’s a 30-point jump from the end of August when just 49% of Americans felt that way. The current level of concern is even higher than it was in the summer of 2007 when 70% considered an attack likely. In December 2008, 58% said an attack was likely.

The new number includes 42% who say another terrorist attack in America is very likely within the next year.
Considering we just recently had a terrorist attack, even though Obama likes to pretend it wasn't, these concerns are valid, I'd suggest.
Men feel more strongly than women that another terrorist attack is likely in the next year. Older voters are more concerned than those who are younger.

Republicans are more worried about another terrorist attack in the near future than are Democrats and voters not affiliated with either party. The Political Class is much less fearful than Mainstream voters.
They'll be fearful after the next attack, alright. Because they'll have blood on their hands and it'll be an election year. Instead now as they sun themselves in luxury, they're more concerned that terror suspects are properly Mirandized rather than the safety of air passengers.

By the way, from the last link is this item from five weeks ago. Go back and read it.
