Poll shows TSA pat-downs anger travelers

Leave a comment

A USA TODAY poll reports 57% of adult fliers are angered by the invasive pat-downs the TSA instituted Nov. 1 as part of a way to further endear the agency to a flying public — the very public that is already pissed off at big government and proved it at the polls Nov. 2.

The polls also shows 42% are angered or bothered by the virtual strip searches provided by the so-called Advanced Imaging Technology systems.
