Poll: Majority of Americans Very Concerned about Unconstitutional Spying on Entire Country




The poll shows that a substantial majority of Americans – 60% – want their government to be more open about its data collection so that the public can understand what is going on. A much smaller proportion, only 35%, said they agreed that the government needs to keep the data it collects secret in order to protect national security.

Most American voters – 58% – are also fearful about private firms acting as contractors to the defence department have too much access to state secrets. Only 8% of respondents said they thought government contractors had too little access.

Both Democratic and Republican leaning respondents replied by 59% that they felt the government needed to be more open about its data collection activities.
