Matthew Hamilton is reporting at Capitol Confidential an overwhelming majority of New York voters are concerned the state will be the target of a terror attack in the near future, according to a new Siena College poll. Eighty-eight percent of those surveyed said they are at least somewhat concerned a terror attack will occur in the near future, according to the poll out Mon., Dec. 14. Still, 63 percent say they have not changed their lifestyle out of fear of an attack. The Siena poll follows on a New York Times/CBS News poll that indicated Americans are more fearful of another terrorist attack than at any other time since the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks.
