Quinnipiac Poll On 9/11 Anniversary: Many Believe NYC Will Be Attacked Again

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – A new Quinnipiac University poll finds that ten years after 9/11, there is a strong belief among Americans that New York City will be attacked by terrorists again and that there will be another significant loss of life.

“Fifty-eight percent of New Yorkers, don’t forget, they were the people who were hit directly, 58 percent of New Yorkers say yes. Fifty-four percent of New Jerseyans, and they looked across the river and saw the towers burning, burning, burning, they think there will be. The nation, a little bit less, but still a lot – 49 percent,” said poll director Maurice Carroll.

A total of 36 percent of American voters are “very worried” or “somewhat worried” about another terrorist attack somewhere in the U.S. in the next few months. This is down from 62 percent in an August 29, 2006 survey, just before the fifth anniversary of 9/11.

But Carroll says the poll also found that 78 percent of American voters surveyed say in spite of concerns about another attack, they and their families are living life as usual.

Additionally, the poll release says historians will consider the 9/11 attack more significant than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, New York City voters say 45 to 32 percent. Men say 44 to 34 percent that Pearl Harbor is more significant, but women point 54 to 23 percent to 9/11. Voters nationwide tip to Pearl Harbor 45 to 43 percent, with women citing 9/11 50 to 36 percent and men pointing to Pearl Harbor 55 to 35 percent.

What do you think was more significant – Pearl Harbor or 9/11? Sound off below.

    As long as you keep fixing the symptoms instead of curing the disease, you’ll always get dead people.

    Islame: It’s a Disease in Need of a Cure.

    FACT: Everywhere where there are muSlimes, sh-!t happens.

    China — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

    India — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slimes burned 100s of hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

    Middle East — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    Russia — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

    South East Asia — sh-!t happens
    (mu-slime thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

    Europe — sh-!t happens
    (suicide bombers that kill little children)

    USA — 9/11 happened

    Notice the pattern here? Even you sanctimonious twits can’t be that dense.

    Goes to reason, no muslimes, no sh-!t.
    All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and than lie about how sorry we are.

    Islam. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio and small pox.

    And some bleeding heart imbecile here will post that it’s just a few “radical” individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But than conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide mu-slime jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9/11.

      What about the Muslims that don’t kill and are good peaceful people?
