President Obama may want to give serious focus to his administration’s efforts to protect Americans from terrorist attacks in Wednesday’s State of the Union Address, according to a breaking poll conducted January 19-21 by Zogby International.

The Poll shows that substantially more American voters felt safer on airplanes under the Bush administration than they currently do under President Obama. The Poll also finds that plurality of voters give Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano an “F” for her efforts to keep America safe.

Voters Feel Less Safe Under Obama

The Zogby poll asked:

When it comes to air travel, do you feel safer under President Obama, or did you feel safer under President Bush?

Only 22 percent of voters say they feel safer under President Obama and 36 percent say they felt safer under President Bush. Nearly 25 percent say they feel equally safe under both Presidents, and 16 percent feel safe under neither.

Just 12 percent of Independent voters feel safer under Obama and a sizable 43 percent say they felt safer under Bush. Nearly 26 percent of Independents say they feel equally safe under Bush and Obama, and 18 percent feel safe under neither President.

Among military families, just 18 percent feel safer under President Obama, and 39 percent felt safer under President Bush. Roughly 28 percent of military families feel equally safe under Bush and Obama, and 16 percent feel safe under neither.

Only 14 percent of voters with a child in their household feel safer under President Obama and 47 percent say they felt safer under President Bush. Of these voters with children, 23 percent say they feel equally safe under both Presidents, and 14 feel safe under neither.

47 percent of Voters Give Janet Napolitano a “D” or an “F” for Safety

The Zogby poll asked:

What grade would you give for the job Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is doing in keeping America safe?

Only 8 percent of voters give Napolitano an “A” and 28 percent give her an “F”. Roughly 18 percent give her a “D”, 15 percent give her a “C” and nearly 25 percent give her a “B”.

Among Independent voters, only 4 percent give Napolitano an “A” and 35 percent give her an “F”. Nearly 22 percent give her a “D”, 13 percent give her a “C” and 18 percent give her a “B”.

Just 9 percent of military families give Napolitano an “A” and 33 percent give her an “F”. Roughly 18 percent give her a “D”, 14 percent give her a “C” and nearly 22 percent give her a “B”.

Among voters with children in their household, only 9 percent give Napolitano an “A” and 33 percent give her an “F”. Nearly 23 percent give her a “D”, 10 percent giver her a “C” and 20 percent give her a “B”.

The Zogby International poll was commissioned by The O’Leary Report newsletter. The Poll surveyed 2,377 voters January 19-21, and has a margin-of-error of plus-or-minus 2.0 percentage points.
