Americans are more afraid of terrorism than they've been in a decade, according to multiple polls taken after the attacks in San Bernardino and Paris.
Sixteen percent of Americans named terrorism as the most important problem facing the country — more than the economy, government and guns.
This is the highest terrorism has registered in a decade, according to Gallup, but it's still much lower than numbers collected after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, which peaked at 46 percent.
