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.
