One-third of Americans say al Qaeda has not weakened 

About one third of Americans think al Qaeda is as strong today as it was before the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey. 

Some 11 percent of people polled said they think the terrorist organization is stronger today than it was before the attacks, despite the recent death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. In a poll last September, 36 percent of people said the organization had strengthened.

Overall however, 48 percent of people in the most recent poll say al Qaeda is weaker now, according to the most recent Rasmussen survey, which has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
