Zogby finds people felt safer under Bush than Obama 

Pollster Brad O'Leary reports that his colleague John Zogby's latest survey finds more people felt safer when George W. Bush was in the White House than they do now with Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

According to O'Leary, Zogby asked respondents "when it comes to air travel, do you feel safer under President Obama, or did you feel safer under President Bush? Only 22 percent of voters say they feel safer under President Obama and 36 percent say they felt safer under President Bush. Nearly 25 percent say they feel equally safe under both Presidents, and 16 percent feel safe under neither.

"Just 12 percent of Independent voters feel safer under Obama and a sizable 43 percent say they felt safer under Bush. Nearly 26 percent of Independents say they feel equally safe under Bush and Obama, and 18 percent feel safe under neither President.

"Among military families, just 18 percent feel safer under President Obama, and 39 percent felt safer under President Bush. Roughly 28 percent of military families feel equally safe under Bush and Obama, and 16 percent feel safe under neither.

"Only 14 percent of voters with a child in their household feel safer under President Obama and 47 percent say they felt safer under President Bush. Of these voters with children, 23 percent say they feel equally safe under both Presidents, and 14 percent feel safe under neither."

Forty-seven percent of Zogby respondents gave Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano either an "F" or a "D" grade.
