A new poll from High Point University claims the majority of North Carolina believes the U.S. government is doing a good job at reducing the threat of terrorism.
A total of 75 percent of those surveyed agree, with 22 percent saying the U.S. is doing "very well" and 53 percent saying the government is doing "fairly well."
The same poll found that 12 percent believed the U.S. was doing "very well" at reducing the threat of terrorism in March 2010.
Thirty-six percent said they believe further acts of terrorism in the US are "very likely" over the next several years and 44 percent said more attacks were "somewhat likely."
"All in all, North Carolina residents are very apprehensive about the future of U.S. involvement in the world," says Martin Kifer, director of the HPU Poll.
