Voters Question Government’s Focus on Domestic Islamic Terrorism

Following the shooting massacre at an Orlando gay nightclub by a man pledging allegiance to the radical Islamic State group (ISIS), fewer voters than ever think the government gives the right amount of attention to the threat of Islamic terrorism here at home.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 20% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government’s focus on domestic Islamic terrorism is about right. That’sdown 11 points from March, just after the bombings of the airport and a metro station in Brussels, and the lowest level measured in surveys for over five years.

Fifty-two percent ( 52%) say the government does not focus enough on this threat, up two points from the previous survey.
