Poll: Americans Okay With Body Scans, Divided on Pat Downs

Americans support the use of airport body scanners by a 2-to-1 margin, but a slight plurality think that pat downs go too far, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

The poll finds that 64 percent favor the scanners, compared to 32 percent who oppose them; 50 percent say the agressive pat downs go to farr, compared with 48 percent who say they’re justified.

That said, the opponents of the pat downs are a bit more passionate about their feelings: “Among all adults 37 percent are strongly opposed, vs. 29 percent who strongly support the pat-down rule.”
