A new Rasmussen poll says 63 percent of likely voters think “domestic terrorism is the greater threat to the United States, compared to 24% who say foreign terrorism is the greater threat.”
The New Year’s Eve report also noted that 13 percent of survey respondents aren’t sure which is the greater threat.
But an alarming 41 percent of those surveyed are not confident President-elect Joe Biden has the ability to deal with terrorist threats, including “30% who are Not at All Confident in Biden’s ability to deal with terrorism.”
Fifty-six percent of all voters are confident Biden can deal with the threat, however.
Forty-two percent believe the threat of terror has increased under Donald Trump’s presidency, while 27 percent think the threat has declined and 25 percent believe it has remained the same.
The survey was taken from among 1,000 likely voters Dec. 28-29 with a margin of sampling error oF +/- 3 percentage points.
Another survey done by OnePoll shows nearly 70 percent of those polled say 2020 made them appreciate their family and friends more than ever, and 55 percent say 202 was the worst year of their lives.
The study was commissioned by Groupon, and it contacted 2,000 Americans. The survey revealed that two-thirds of those responding put “more thought into the gifts they gave their loved ones during the holiday season.”
As the New Year began in Australia, the Associated Press reported that pandemic restrictions in the Island Continent limited crowds. There were “made-for-television” fireworks displays, and a fireworks show in Sidney over the harbor apparently was done over empty streets where traditionally a million people turn out.
As the AP story put it, the continent Down Under found “many people bidding farewell to a year they’d prefer to forget.”
Looming on the horizon is the Jan. 5 U.S. Senate runoff election for two Georgia seats, which will determine the balance of power on Capitol Hill. If Republican incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue can retain their seats, it will give the GOP a thin majority to block the increasingly far-left Democrat agenda.
