Astonishing poll results for 1st time since 9/11 hijackings

 

 

 

 

 

According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail to keep its citizens safe.

Even in the wake of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing – in which a pair of Islamic radicals are accused of planting explosives that took the lives of 3 and wounded over 280 – the polls suggest Americans are hesitant to give up any further freedoms in exchange for increased “security.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Fox News survey polling a random national sample of 619 registered voters the day after the bombing found despite the tragic event, those interviewed responded very differently than following 9/11.

 

For the first time since a similar question was asked in May 2001, more Americans answered “no” to the question, “Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?”

 

Of those surveyed on April 16, 2013, 45 percent answered no to the question, compared to 43 percent answering yes.

 

In May 2001, before 9/11, the balance was similar, with 40 percent answering no to 33 percent answering yes.
