More than 30 percent of the 1,000 likely American voters, who participated in a recent independent public opinion survey, said they believe U.S. and its’ allies are winning the War on Terror.
Poll results included:
36 percent believe the United States and its allies are winning the War on Terror, but 26 percent say the terrorists are winning and 30 percent think neither side is.
Belief in America’s success in the war on terrorism is down from 40 percent in July and is the lowest measured since April 2011, just before U.S. Navy SEALs killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
Confidence is a point below a survey conducted a week after the bombings at the Boston Marathon this past April, but at the same time, belief that the terrorists are winning is now the highest since January 2011.
When given the choice, 60 percent of voters believe economic threats are a bigger threat to the United States than terrorist attacks or military attacks from other nations, but 30 percent believe a terrorist attack poses the bigger threat to the nation and 2 percent say that of a military attack from another nation.
54 percent continue to feel that the United States is too involved in the Middle East, up from 43 percent in January, while 10 percent believe the United States is not involved enough in that region.
