Are We Safer?

Using CNN/USA TODAY DATA (I'm using liberal generated statistical info to prove that they are wrong. Guess they don't analyze their own data)....

First I started with the question: Do people feel more worried or less worried about terrorism today than before the takedown of Saddam?

I added 'very' and 'somewhat worried' together to create "Worried" and added 'not too' and 'not at all' to create "Not Worried".

My first analysis was everything prior to the beginning of the Saddam takedown compared to everything after. 39% were worried before and 35.9% are worried since. Then I compared the five 2002 surveys with the most recent 5 surveys (basically 2004). 38.6% were worried in 2002. And 36.4% were worried in the last 5 surveys.

Basically, STATISTICALLY DEMONSTRATED-- people DO feel SAFER ("less worried") today then prior to the takedown of Saddam.

CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll. Sept. 3-5, 2004. Nationwide:

.

"How worried are you that you or someone in your family will become a victim of terrorism: very worried, somewhat worried, not too worried, or not worried at all?" Form A (N=488, MoE ± 5)
