Rasmussen: 60% of Americans support profiling

60% of Americans support profiling according to a recent Rasmussen survey. They are willing to use factors such as race and ethnicity to determine subjects of security checks.
Most Americans still believe in the need for profiling and feel it should be used to determine who is searched at airports.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 60% of American Adults say profiling - the use of factors such as race, ethnicity and overall appearance to determine the subjects of security checks - is necessary in today’s society. Twenty-seven percent (27%) disagree and feel profiling is an unnecessary violation of civil rights. Another 13% are not sure.
