It’s hard to say whether they merit more envy or more contempt, but 12 percent of U.S. adults never think about terrorism. That’s one end of the spectrum in a new Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll. At the opposite end, 13 percent think of terrorism several times a day, and 19 percent do so once a day. Another 18 percent think about it a couple times a week; 13 percent do so once a week, and 20 percent think of it less than once a week. Asked whether they feel their own lives are in peril due to terrorism, 25 percent said “yes.” What are the most likely terror targets? Airports/airplanes led the list (cited by 25 percent), followed by bridges/tunnels (15 percent) and shopping malls (13 percent). One striking statistic: 20 percent said they’d be “very likely” and another 20 percent “somewhat likely” to move at least temporarily if their city was rumored to be a terrorist target.
