Poll: Vast Majority Of Americans Okay With Body Image Scanners
All the media coverage of TSA screening complaints doesn’t seem to have had much of an impact on public opinion so far:
Americans have differing views on two potentially inconvenient and invasive practices that airports could implement to uncover potential terrorist attacks, a new CBS News poll shows. Americans overwhelmingly approve of the use of full-body digital x-ray machines – a new technology in use at some airports in the U.S. Most, meanwhile, do not approve of racial or ethnic profiling – a practice not in place.
Should airports use full body X-Ray machines?
- Yes — 81%
- No — 15%
Is ethnic profiling at airports justified?
- Yes — 37%
- No — 52%
An interesting data point, don’t you agree?
