Most Americans believe Osama’s death will increase terror attacks: Poll
Washington: Most Americans believe Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s death will increase incidents of terrorism or have “no impact” in reducing terrorism worldwide, a poll has revealed.
The Politico-George Washington University Battleground Poll showed that 33 percent of those surveyed feared that Osama’s death would increase terrorism strikes.
Forty percent said that his death would not have an impact on the number of terrorist acts and only 18 percent believe terrorism will decrease either worldwide or in the United States.
The poll also showed that President Barack Obama has not necessarily benefited politically from Osama’s death, Politico reports.
Forty-one percent believe Obama and former President George W. Bush deserve equal credit for Osama’s death.
Thirty-nine percent voters believed that Obama should get more credit, while 12 percent believed Bush should get more credit for Osama’s death.
The poll covered 1,000 registered voters. The Republican polling firm the Tarrance Group and a Democratic firm Lake Research Partners conducted the poll.
