Obama overheard muttering, “meh.”
More voters than ever now say the terrorists are winning the War on Terror.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters now think the terrorists are winning the war, up from 37% last month, and the highest ever since regular surveying began on the question in late 2006. Just 27% now think the United States and its allies are winning, in line with recent months but slightly above the all-time low of 19% measured in February. Twenty-one percent (21%) don’t think either side is winning, down nine points from May and the lowest since 2012.
More than 40% of voters generally thought the United States was winning the War on Terror through 2008 and 2009 and peaked again at 55% in May 2011, just after bin Laden’s death was announced
