68% Expect NSA Phone Spying To Stay the Same or Increase

Despite President Obama’s announcement of tighter controls on the National Security Agency’s domestic spying efforts [2], two-out-of-three U.S. voters think spying on the phone calls of ordinary Americans will stay the same or increase.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters trust the president, the executive branch, Congress and federal judges to make sure the NSA program is abiding by the Constitution.

That’s up from 30% in early June when the spying program was first revealed [3].

Forty-nine percent (49%) still don’t trust the government’s top officials to keep the program constitutional, but that’s down from 53% in October [4]. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.  (To see survey question wording, click here [5].)
