Poll: Most Americans Support NSA's Efforts

WaPo reported A majority of Americans initially support a controversial National Security Agency program to collect information on telephone calls made in the United States in an effort to identify and investigate potential terrorist threats, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Wonderful. The American people are still smarter than the MSM.
The new survey found that 63 percent of Americans said they found the NSA program to be an acceptable way to investigate terrorism, including 44 percent who strongly endorsed the effort. Another 35 percent said the program was unacceptable, which included 24 percent who strongly objected to it.... The survey results reflect initial public reaction to the NSA program. Those views that could change or deepen as more details about the effort become known over the next few days.
i.e. the MSM is going to try its best to mislead the American people so that they will turn against this perfectly legal program.

Richard Borin, who did the WPost poll, has a record of using questionable methodolgy to produce polls that support Republican postions. See Jane Hamsher's 5-2-06 post on the Firedoglake blog.

One can always jigger the results of a poll by the way the questions are phrased, but I find it surprising that WaPo would do anything to support a Republican position.
