The 9-11 Effect Grows

This is an interesting poll as we head into the final laps of this election season:

The majority of Americans feel that the terror attacks of September 11th will go down in history as more significant than the attack on Pearl Harbor, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll.

Fifty-six percent of those surveyed said 9/11 was more significant, but there was definitely a generation gap. Americans aged 18 to 34 overwhelmingly say that 9/11 was bigger, but voters over 65 were almost evenly divided.

The poll also finds that 62 percent of those polled are either very worried or somewhat worried that there will be another terror attack on the U.S. in the next few months.

It is clear the UK Airline Plot (and subsequent nervous false alarms) is having an impact on the American psyche. If 62% feel there will be another attack, does anyone think they want the lefties dismantling and exposing our terrorist defenses? Does anyone think this 62% of the population cheered the decision to shut down leads the NSA picks up from terrorists and their contacts here? I seriously doubt it. The original announcement is here.

    It is hard to imagine. OTOH according to Roy Robison almost 3/4 of Americans were taken in by Wilson’s “Bush Lied” lie.

    I believe that the recent war in Lebanon has had much more effect on the public than did the London plot.
