Feeling Safer?


More than half of Americans give President Bush 55% negative ratings on his performance in keeping the United States safe from terrorism and give the Department of Homeland Security a similar negative rating (56%) on its efforts. Nearly half of Americans (49%) believe the Bush administration has tipped the balance between personal security and personal freedom too far towards security, depriving the American people of too many freedoms, a new UPI/Zogby Interactive poll shows.


More Americans said they feel less safe (42%) than safer (35%) from terrorism now compared to before the start of the Iraq war four years ago. Half (51%) said they feel less safe with George W. Bush as president, while 43% said they feel safer with the current president leading the country.
