Gallup has some recent updates about national security concerns:
Americans’ satisfaction with the nation’s security from terrorism has significantly eroded for the second year in a row, with a majority now saying they are dissatisfied. More than two-thirds, 69%, said in 2014 that they were satisfied with the nation’s security from terrorism, but that figure dropped to 59% a year ago and now has fallen to 43%.
While the economy is typically the primary item on voters’ minds, national security has caught up quickly. It’s a fantastic opportunity for candidates to inspire confidence.
