September 11th -- National Holiday?

Recommended Posts

What are CP Posters' opinions about the talk going around about this :confused:

According to an AP Poll, 44% favor the idea and 51% opposed, slightly dropping off since the last poll in March.


Sept. 1) - Americans are divided about whether Sept. 11 should be a national holiday like Veterans Day or Memorial Day, according to a new poll.

Support for a national holiday on the date that terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon outside Washington has slipped a bit since March, according to a CNN-Time poll released Sunday. While 44 percent favor the idea, 51 percent opposed it, down from a 48-48 split in March.

The telephone poll of 1,004 adults was conducted Wednesday and Thursday and has an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

The poll also found that:

A third said they feel less safe in public places, and slightly more said they feel less safe traveling since Sept. 11.

Almost a third said they are worried that a terrorist attack will occur on the anniversary of Sept. 11.

People were most likely to say an attack in the next 12 months would be carried out with a car or truck carrying a bomb or with biological or chemical weapons.

Two-thirds said the nation's intelligence gathering agencies failed in their responsibilities to obtain information about the attacks.
