MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Nevertheless, the number is not as high as it was in the first five years after the September 11 terrorist attack in New York, when worries about terrorism ranged from 38 percent to 47 percent, according to the poll.

"More than a third of Americans (35%) say they frequently or occasionally worry about being a victim of terrorism, the highest since 2009, when the same percentage reported this level of worry," the Gallup pollster report read.

The fears of respondents concerning two other crimes have also augmented — the level of worries about being attacked while driving increased by 6 percent, and about getting mugged by 5 percent.

The survey was carried out on October 5-9 with the participation of 1,017 adult respondents across the United States. The maximum sample error stands at 4 percent.
