I've noticed more news reports about bomb threats being phoned in since this NSA story broke. The flight to Phoenix, Newtown school and now Princeton University.
Seems a bit odd is all. A way to get people on board.
But perhaps the largest factor is the phrasing of the questions. A Rasmussen poll conducted during the same period came to nearly the completely opposite conclusion. Most voters oppose the U.S. government’s secret collection of the phone records of millions of Americans and think the feds are spying too much on U.S. citizens these days. Just 26% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the government’s secret collecting of these phone records for national security purposes regardless of whether there is any suspicion of wrongdoing. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% are opposed to the practice.
A bit of good news for the 265 sitting members of Congress who voted to extend the legislation that the NSA claims as its mandate to collect phone data: the majority of Americans don't care. Pew Research today released a poll suggesting that 56 percent of the country thinks doing just that is just fine.

No. They do not.
It's just another attempt to make people think what they want them to think.
The old Jedi mind trick.....
Most people are to stupid and too lazy to research and have their own "informed" opinion and will regurgitate whatever they read in the news as fact.
They can put out a "poll" like that and sway many, many Americans to thinking that way.
It's sad but true that people are so gullible.
