Many people claim that America was changed forever by the attacks of 9/11, but only 11% of all adults think the country has changed for the better. A solid majority (68%) feel America has changed for the worse, up nine points from last year.

These findings show a continuing shift in opinion since a couple years after the attacks occurred. On the second anniversary of the attacks, 38% of Americans said that the United States has changed for the better, while 47% said it changed for the worse.
