A small plurality of Americans think the United States and its allies are winning the war on terrorism, according to a new Gallup poll. The survey shows that 46 percent of Americans feel that way, while 42 percent say neither the U.S. alliance nor the terrorists are winning.
 
Respondents’ views are little changed from October 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks. At that time, 42 percent of Americans said we’re winning the terrorism war, while 44 percent said neither side is winning. The poll has a four percentage-point margin of error.
 
People are less optimistic than periods of 2002 and 2003, when two-thirds of the country thought U.S. authorities were winning the battle.
 
Only 9 percent of Americans now believe terrorists are winning the war, which is the smallest total for that view since the survey began in 2001.
