And for the past few years the Obama administration has reportedly been gathering and analyzing
information from major internet companies about audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails and
documents involving people in other countries in an attempt to locate suspected terrorists. The
government reportedly does not target internet usage by U.S. citizens and if such data is collected, it
is kept under strict controls. Do you think the Obama administration was right or wrong in

METHODOLOGY
A total of 1,014 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. All
respondents were asked questions concerning basic demographics, and the entire sample was weighted to reflect national Census
figures for gender, race, age, education, region of country, and telephone usage. Among the entire sample, 31% described
themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as Independents or
members of another party
Crosstabs on the following pages only include results for subgroups with enough unweighted cases to produce a sampling error
of +/- 8.5 percentage points or less. Some subgroups represent too small a share of the national population to produce crosstabs
with an acceptable sampling error. Interviews were conducted among these subgroups, but results for groups with a sampling
error larger than +/-8.5 percentage points are not displayed and instead are denoted with "N/A".

Question 19
And for the past few years the Obama administration has reportedly been gathering and analyzing
information from major internet companies about audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails and
documents involving people in other countries in an attempt to locate suspected terrorists. The
government reportedly does not target internet usage by U.S. citizens and if such data is collected,
it is kept under strict controls. Do you think the Obama administration was right or wrong in
gathering and analyzing that internet data?
