Majority of Americans Oppose Spying On Foreign Leaders

Polls Show that Americans Are Opposed to NSA Spying

A poll released this week by the Pew Research Center found:

A 56% majority of Americans say it is unacceptable for the U.S. to monitor the phones of allied leaders, while 36% say the practice is acceptable.

There are virtually no partisan differences in these opinions. Roughly equal shares of partisans — 57% of Republicans, 53% of Democrats and 56% of independents — say that the practice is unacceptable.

The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Oct. 31-Nov. 3 among 1,002 adults, finds that 22% say they very closely followed reports about the U.S. government’s phone and internet surveillance programs.

By comparison, 16% followed baseball’s World Series very closely.

This is in line with other polls which show that:

  • Only 11% of Americans trust Obama to actually do anything to rein in spying

Despite the propaganda push by the NSA and its lackeys in Congress, the people aren’t buying it.

    I’m pretty sure the American people will oppose the Affordable Care Act when they realize the architect of the Swine Flu debacle (Sibelius) has really gone over the edge, this time. The corporate/governments largest expenditure for 2013, over 900 bn., was funneled to/through HHS. For What? see this…. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-11-06/what-us-government-spent-its-money-2013 Obama Care is so F’d up our Senators are discussing the multitude of people who will die due to lack of coverage and continuation of medical services. And to top it off, if and when you can access the imaginary health system you will also have to deal with Software with multiple security issues, including user names and passwords.see here: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2013/11/05/cbs-spotlights-multiple-security-issues-obamacare-website
