Most Americans OK With Warrantless Internet Surveillance

That is the conclusion based on a survey of 1,042 Americans on the subject.

In the latest Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, 54 percent of Americans say it can be necessary for the government to sacrifice freedoms to fight terrorism; 45 percent disagree. About half of Americans think it is acceptable to allow warrantless government analysis of internet activities and communicationsآ—even of American citizensآ—in order to keep an eye out for suspicious activity. About 3 in 10 are against this type of government investigation.
