Gallup recently polled 1,014 Americans over age 18 living in the United States on their view of how good a job TSA is doing. Unbelievably, 54% of those polled think TSA is doing either an excellent or good job.
I knew there were a lot of stupid people but I never realized the numbers were that high.
It gets worse. Of those who have flown at least once in the last 12 months, 57% think they are doing a good or excellent job.
If there is anything encouraging about this poll is that less than half of all those surveyed – 41% – believe that the screening procedures are either extremely or very effective. That said, only 13% of those surveyed don’t think the TSA is “not too effective” or “not effective at all”. I guess I should be happy that at least 13% of those surveyed have a grasp on reality.
