JNS.org – A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll marking the 13th 9/11 anniversary shows that about 37 percent of Americans feel that the U.S. is not as safe now as it was before the terrorist attacks of 2001. That figure is up from the 28 percent who reported feeling the same way last year.

The poll also showed that 61 percent of Americans believe that U.S. military action against the Islamic State terrorist group is necessary.

“A very war-weary country… seems to have woken up to the real threat that ISIS may present,” said Bill McInturff, one of the pollsters who conducted the survey, according to The Associated Press.

Only 32 percent of voters were found to approve of U.S. President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. Obama’s overall approval rating is at an all-time low of 40 percent, according to the poll. Sixty-seven percent of respondents said they feel the U.S. is “on the wrong track.”
