(CBS) "Do Americans feel safer now than before 9/11? For many, the answer is no, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll.
Fifty-four percent of Americans say they generally feel safe, but 46 percent say they feel somewhat uneasy or in danger.
Compared with five years ago, 39 percent of Americans say they feel less safe now, compared with only 14 percent who say they feel safer. Forty-six percent say they feel the same." Link.
Americans are not stupid. If only the media could catch up.
