MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A record 55 percent of US citizens are dissatisfied with the national security from terrorism, the Gallup pollster said on Monday.

Only 43 percent of those polled on January 6-10, 2016, said they were satisfied with the nation’s security from terrorism, 16 percent less than last year and 26 percent less than in 2014.

Even in January 2002, following the 9/11 attacks, when the previous satisfaction rate record low was registered, 51 percent said they were satisfied with the security measures.
