Eight in 10 people in the United States think the threat from terrorism is about the same or has grown worse than it was at the time of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a poll found.

About half think the threat is at the same level and three in 10 say it has grown worse, a CBS News poll found.

Other recent findings:
