Ridgew0od NJ, Saturday will mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans, and voters believe many of their fellow citizens have forgotten the horrors of that day. Most now fear domestic terrorism more than a foreign attack.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that many Americans have forgotten the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That’s slightly up from five years ago. Forty-two percent (42%) disagree that most Americans have forgotten the attacks by the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.
