Sunday May 8th, 2011
The killing of Osama bin Laden brought back memories of September 11, 2001 for many, and, just a few months short of the 10th anniversary of those horrendous events, most Americans believe the attacks changed the country for the worse.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that an overwhelming 84% of Adults agree that the 9/11 attacks changed America forever. Just five percent (5%) don't believe that to be true, while 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Fifty-seven percent (57%) believe America has changed for the worse since the terrorist attacks. Twenty-one percent (21%) think the country has changed for the better, while 11% say there has been no change. Another 11% are not sure what impact the September 11 attacks have has on the nation.
