During the commemoration of each anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, a logical question is always asked. And that is, whether the threat of terrorism has been reduced since then, and to what extent.
Whether because of political support or something else, more than half of Republicans think, according to research, that America is now safer from terrorism than it was then. On the other hand, less than a quarter of Democrats think the same, America is safer now.
More precisely, expressed in figures, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll, 54 percent of Republicans think the U.S. is safer against terror attacks than it was before the 9/11 strikes occurred. Democrats polled were less confident with only 24 percent saying they felt a greater measure of safety.
Even more than half of Democrats, as many as 52% think that the threat of terrorism has remained more or less the same, say constant. While 35% of Republicans think the same.
Trump, of course, also talks about the achievements in the fight against terrorism in the election campaign: "We killed the founder and leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi," Trump told a Michigan crowd on Thursday. "We took out the world's number one terrorist and the mass murderer of American troops. Qasem Soleimani is dead. We kept America out of new wars and we're bringing our troops back home, and they're coming home very rapidly."
Maybe that's why more than half of Republicans think America is safer now, or just don't think it's just support.
On the other hand, Democrats who understand Trump's games and business moves believe that his policies can bring further divisions in the world and that the threat from terrorism, but also from other dangers, has remained the same.
