(CBS NEWS) — Fifteen years from the , voters across the battleground states agree that terrorism remains a threat, but they differ markedly on how to fight it. The differences help define what they’re looking for in a commander-in-chief, not only in terms of a president’s characteristics, but in his or her overall approach to the conflict.
Voters across these states do bemoan the loss of national unity that they felt in the aftermath of the terror attacks: 52 percent say that spirit has vanished now. Thirty-two percent say it’s still a little bit there and just 9 percent say it’s very much there. And only 15 percent feel America is winning the war on terror today, while 29 percent say we’re losing, and 43 percent call it a stalemate.
But there’s some disagreement on this among voters: Clinton’s voters are far more likely to say winning (27 percent) than Trump’s voters, most of whom – 51 percent – feel the U.S. is losing it.
