War on Terror Update
Majority Sees U.S. Winning War on Terror for First Time Since 2004
Over half of American voters (51%) now believe the United States and its allies are winning the war on terror, the highest figure recorded in nearly four years by Rasmussen Reports in a nationwide survey.
Only 16% now think the terrorists are on top, while 27% view it as a stalemate. Prior to this week’s survey, the number who believe the terrorists are winning had never fallen below 20%.
Last July, just 36% thought the U.S. and its allies were winning. At that time, an equal number—36%--thought the terrorists were ahead.
Other indicators in the survey also show that Americans have growing confidence that things are looking up in the war on terror. (link)
That 16% who still believe the terrorists are winning include the world's Islamist terrorists and America's journalists who hold out hope that it is so.
