Expectation Of Another Terrorist Attack?... Rasmussen Poll Indicates the Fearmongering is Working... Again!

A new Rasmussen poll shows that the Northwest Airlines stunt attack has seriously increased Americans' fears about terrorism. (The American people are getting ready to do it again... to give up the last bits of control over their own lives of freedoms and liberties to BigGov for a whole lot more FEARMONGERING and FALSE securities! Problem - Reaction - Solution... WAKE UP! Shut the damn TV OFF! ~ S.I.A.)

The poll, which was conducted last night, shows that 79% of likely voters think another terrorist attack is likely within the next year. This is up from 49% of Americans who said the same thing in Rasmussen's poll in August. The new poll also contains 42% of likely voters who think another attack is "very likely," up from 16% of Americans in August.

The pollster's analysis admits that there is a difference between polling likely voters compared to all Americans. However, the difference is usually within the 3-5 point range, meaning that this poll's 30-point jump is still significant.

The poll also finds that voters are following the Northwest story in large numbers: "Eighty-three percent (83%) say they are following those news reports at least somewhat closely, including 44% who are following very closely. Just 15% are not following news about the terrorist incident very closely or at all."
