Poll: 42% Believe The U.S. Is Winning The 'War On Terror'

Military Times: Poll: 42 percent of Americans think the US is winning the 'war on terror'

The survey of 1,000 likely American voters, conducted between March 26-27, found that 42 percent of respondents believe that the U.S. and its allies are winning the global war on terrorism. Twenty percent said that terrorists have the upper hand, 31 percent said neither and 7 percent were unsure.

While that number is down from 45 percent during the week leading up to President Trump’s inauguration in January, confidence levels are still higher than they have been since January 2013 when they were also at 42 percent. The last time that confidence levels in the fight against terrorism reached 45 percent was December 2012. Rasmussen Reports has been conducting the survey multiple times per year since early 2005.

It is always going to be a "forever" war, you are fighting an ideology not a country. Sometimes this war will be massive and other times fought in the shadows. Bush Jr said this is going to be a long war, and he is correct.
