Americans Can't Get Enough Groping

Young people, in particular, give thumbs-up to security theater

Forget what you've heard in the news. According to a new Gallup poll, the majority of Americans think the Transportation Security Administration, which handles security screening at US airports, is doing just fine, "despite recent negative press."

The survey, which was published on Wednesday, asked a sample of 1,014 randomly selected American adults whether they thought the TSA was "doing an excellent, good, only fair, or poor job." Of that group, 54 per cent responded that the agency was doing an "excellent" or "good" job. Only 12 per cent thought it was doing a "poor" job.
