Terror fears drive more in U.S. to avoid crowds

(GALLUP NEWS) — WASHINGTON, D.C. — Thirty-eight percent of U.S. adults say the threat of terrorism makes them less willing to attend events where there are thousands of people. This is up from 27% in July 2011, the last time Gallup asked the question. It is also the highest level recorded since Gallup began asking the question after 9/11.

These most recent data come from Gallup’s latest survey conducted June 7-11.

The record-high percentage of Americans avoiding large events comes on the heels of the May 22 terrorist attack on concertgoers in Manchester, England, and the June 3 attack at a crowded bridge and restaurants in London.
