Poll: 42 percent of Americans say they are less safe from terrorism than before 9/11

In the nearly 15 years since 2,973 people were murdered in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the U.S. government has undertaken measures designed to prevent further attacks. Despite this, Adam Taylor of the Washington Post reports that 42% of Americans feel less safe than before 9/11 and 89% feel that terrorism will be part of life in the future.

The poll was conducted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
