Gallup – Americans equally worried about mass shooting and terrorism

A recent Gallup poll asked about Americans’ level of worry about becoming victims of a mass shooting or becoming victims of a terrorist attack. Results indicate that Americans are equally worried about both eventualities, though less than 20% said they were “very worried”.

In overall survey results, 46% of adults polled are “very” or “somewhat” worried about being a victim of terrorism, and 45% are similarly apprehensive about a mass shooting, while simultaneously, 55% of adults polled said they were “not too” or “not at all” worried that they or a family member would be a victim of a mass shooting, while 52% feel the same lack of concern about terrorist attacks, reports Gallup’s Megan Brenan.
