Liberals Losing Badly On NSA Issue

Published by at 9:44 pm under All General Discussions,FISA-NSA

The liberals are taking a well deserved shellacking on their calls to Impeach Bush for using the NSA to stop Terrorists in the US. Fox News has the latest Opinion Dynamics Poll showing the country lining up behind Bush, which means against the liberal democrats

25. Do you think the Patriot Act has helped prevent terrorist attacks in the United States or not?

10-11 Jan 06

Yes – 59%
No – 29
Not Sure – 12

26. Based on what you know, do you support or oppose extending the Patriot
Act when it comes up for renewal?

10-11 Jan 06

Support – 57%
Oppose – 31
Not Sure – 11

29. When you hear of government officials anonymously leaking top-secret national security information to the press, are you more inclined to think of the officials as patriots who are blowing the whistle because they think something illegal might be going on, or traitors who are leaking government secrets and possibly causing harm to the country? (ROTATE)

10-11 Jan 06

Whistle Blowers – 27%
Traitors – 50
Not Sure – 23

Just a comment here. Liberals make up 20% of the electorate, which means 2/3rds of the democrats. Those cheering on Risen and the NY Times are fighting against nearly 80% of the country. This is where Durbin ended up in his Nazi comparison on GITMO. This is untenable for a national party.

30. Do you think the president should or should not have the power to authorize the National Security Agency to monitor electronic communications of suspected terrorists without getting warrants, even if one end of the communication is in the United States?

10-11 Jan 06

Should – 58%
Should Not – 36
Not Sure – 6

This is the democrats initially hanging with the liberals…

Until they see the result of the above poll calling the leakers traitors. Then the smart ones will move away from this story. As they will on the next question

31. In an effort to identify terrorist activity, do you think the president should or should not have the power to authorize the National Security Agency to do computer searches of large numbers of international phone calls coming in and out of the United States without getting warrants?

10-11 Jan 06

Should – 60%
Should Not – 34
Not Sure – 7

33. Would you personally mind having the National Security Agency monitor an international telephone call of yours?

10-11 Jan 06

Yes – 33%
No – 60
Not Sure – 3
Don’t Call Overseas – 3

Folks, that last one is a killer. By two to one the public is giving the President tacit permission to execute the NSA plan, as we know it, on them. This is not an impeachable issue, but it is definitely one to massively lose the 2006 elections over.

    You are invited to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the first Inauguration of President Ronald Reagan, January 20, 2006.

    It will be a great chance to reflect on where we have been, the lessons we have learned and where we are going as a nation.

  2. Democrats “out of the mainstream” on NSA Surveilla

    AJ Strata breaks down the latest Fox News Poll on the NSA surveillance question. The verdict? Democrats are losing the “war” of public opinion. Like I said here, when push comes to shove people say, “Whatever, just keep us from getting killed!”…….

  3. Echelon v. NSA: A Wiretapping Story

    The American Thinker has more details on how the NYT supported Echelon, which included spying on American citizens, though it had some misgivings, but harshly criticizes the NSA program under the Bush Administration where the focus is wholly on forei…

  4. […] Our good friend AJ brings to my attention yet another poll showing the public is perfectly fine with the NSA’s eavesdropping program, even with the magic ‘warrantless’ word inserted (for those keeping score, that’s 2 out of 3 that included ‘warrantless’ but still showed majority approval)… […]

  5. Sensible Mom says:

    Fox Poll

    Democrats are favored by five percentage points and President Bush’s approval rating is at 42%. In other words, this is not a republican weighted poll. And yet, when the issues were presented to the respondents in detail, they overwhelmingly support…

  6. Kaz-Man says:

    Do they purposely pick the side of issues that only have 30% support? Some call it guts, I call it nuts.
    Can anyone in good conscience trust this party on issues of national security? Hell, no!

  7. trentk269 says:

    All I can say is, “wait til November- you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

  8. […] SideBear: The people at The Strata-Sphere did an excellent job at putting this together. As usual the Democrats/Libs find themselves on the wrong side of the issue vs. the American Public. They seem to be clueless about what the average American wants which translate into votes. […]

  9. […] To us these answers are ironically a reason you should not listen to polls, but rather to common sense. A clear majority of Americans favors the homeland defense policies of the Bush administration, whatever problems they may otherwise have with Bush personally or with his other policies. Bad news for the anti-war Left. (HT: Strata-Sphere) […]

  10. Fox News Poll on Electronic Surveillance Contradicts AP Poll

    A new Fox News-Opinion Dynamics poll completely contradicts an AP-Ipsos poll on the same topic. This is suspicious to say the least. You might recall an AP-Ipsos poll out just a couple days ago, that supposedly said that Americans didn’t…

  11. What the New York Times Hath Wrought

    Anybody think this is a coincidence?:

    Federal agents have launched an investigation into a surge in the purchase of large quantities of disposable cell phones by individuals from the Middle East and Pakistan, ABC News has learned.

    The phones —…
