War on Terror

More are Afraid of Domestic Attacks Than Foreign Terrorists

Almost eleven years after 9/11/2001


While the War on Terror continues, most Americans believe the bigger terrorist threat to the United States comes from within. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of American Adults think a bigger threat now to the United States is a domestic attack. Just 18% believe an attack from terrorists outside the United States is a bigger threat, but another 17% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
