Almost two-thirds of Americans support torturing terror suspects, a new poll has found.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll found that 63% said torture should often or sometimes be used to get information; only 15% said it should never be used. Support was stronger among Republicans (82%) than Democrats (53%). These figures represent an uptick in torture support, which Reuters says has hovered around 50% in recent years.
Additionally, two-thirds of respondents believe it is very or somewhat likely that a terrorist attack will occur in the U.S. in the next six months. They feel especially concerned at airports and bus and train stations.
The poll includes 1,976 people surveyed online from March 22-28 and has a credibility interval of 2.5%.
