Eighteen years after the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, most voters here continue to believe the United States is beating the terrorists but don’t think the War on Terror is over. They’re evenly divided over whether America is a safer place these days.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States and its allies are winning the War on Terrorism. That’s down slightly from 56% a year ago but consistent with findings since President Trump’s election in November 2016. Prior to that time, this finding generally ran from the mid-20s to the low 40s. Just 16% now believe the terrorists are winning, while 25% say neither side is ahead.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on September 9-10, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
