New Poll on NSA Program

NEW POLL ON NSA PROGRAM….Newsweek has a new poll out that tests reaction to the NSA’s call monitoring program, and the results are significantly different from the Washington Post’s poll yesterday. Perhaps it’s because a day has passed and the news has sunk in a bit, or perhaps it’s because it’s a full-size poll (1007 respondent), but in any case 53% think the program invades people’s privacy and 57% think Bush has gone too far in expanding presidential power.

Whew. My faith in the American public is slightly restored.
