Criticism of Security Effort Rises After Christmas Day Attack

In differences among other groups, there's a gender gap on screening: Six in 10 men favor using personal characteristics such as nationality and ethnicity in security screening; this drops to 47 percent among women. But if these characteristics are used as part of a broader profile, rather than on their own, that difference largely disappears.

METHODOLOGY: This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by telephone Jan. 12-15, 2010, among a random national sample of 1,083 adults, including landline and cell-phone-only respondents, with an oversample of African Americans (weighted to their correct share of the population) for a total of 153 black respondents. Results for the full sample have a 3.5-point error margin. Click here for a detailed description of sampling error. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by TNS of Horsham, Pa.
