Americans React Calmly to Berlin Attack

While Europe cleans up the mess from its latest terrorist outrage, Americans aren’t overly concerned about terror on these shores this holiday season and don’t expect more of it in the years to come.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 36% of Likely U.S. Voters are even somewhat concerned about a possible terrorist attack in the area where they live this holiday season, with only 16% who are Very Concerned. Most voters (62%) don’t share that concern, with 25% who are Not At All Concerned. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
