May 23, 2013 - New York City Voters Smile For The Security Cameras, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Worried About Terrorism, But Won't Change Their Life

PDF format

New York City voters support 82 - 14 percent the increased use of surveillance cameras in public spaces, with support among black and Hispanic voters even higher, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Support for more cameras is 80 - 16 percent among white voters, 86 - 12 percent among black voters and 88 - 12 percent among Hispanic voters, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh- pe-ack) University poll finds. Women support more cameras 86 - 11 percent, compared to 78 - 19 percent for men. There is very little partisan gap as Democrats support cameras 85 - 12 percent, while Republicans support them 86 - 13 percent, with 78 - 18 percent support among independent voters.

A total of 62 percent of New York City voters are "very worried" or "somewhat worried" there will be another terrorist attack in the city.

But even after the Boston Marathon bombings, 87 percent of voters say they live their day-to-day life as usual while 12 percent say they have made some changes. Among those who say they are "very worried" about another terrorist attack, 27 percent say they have made some changes in their daily lives.

"Most New Yorkers think another terrorist attack like the Boston Marathon bombing is likely. But overwhelmingly they're not making any changes in their lives because of it," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"Smile, you're on a New York City surveillance camera, and voters would like to see more of them."

New York City voters approve 75 - 15 percent of the way Michael Bloomberg is handling terror, much better than his 50 - 42 percent overall job approval rating.

Voters say 79 - 14 percent the New York Police Department has been effective in combatting terrorism, with a strong thumbs up from every group. Overall, voters approve 61 - 31 percent of the job police are doing. Black voters disapprove 47 - 41 percent, while approval is 75 - 19 percent among white voters and 61 - 31 percent among Hispanic voters.

The NYPD exceeded its authority with surveillance of Muslims in New Jersey, 26 percent of city voters say, while 32 percent say the measure was necessary to protect the city, with 37 percent offering no opinion.

The government should not violate basic civil liberties to prevent terrorism, 70 percent of New York City voters say, while 24 percent say the government should do whatever it takes, even if civil liberties are violated.

New York City voters are divided on the issue of stop-and-frisk, with 46 percent of voters approving and 49 percent disapproving. There is a large racial divide as white voters approve 60 - 35 percent while disapproval is 67 - 28 percent among black voters and 58 - 38 percent among Hispanic voters.

Voters support 68 - 26 percent creating the position of inspector general to independently monitor the NYPD. The only group opposed is Republicans 52 - 39 percent.

Only 9 percent of voters say having an inspector general will make the city less safe, while 44 percent say it will make the city safer, with 42 percent who say it won't make a difference.

"We think our cops have been effective keeping us terror-free, and we think they do a good job overall. But we're mixed on stop-and-frisk, with a big racial split: white voters are for it; black and Hispanic voters are opposed," Carroll said.

"The most important proposal that's come out of the stop-and-frisk controversy, the idea of an inspector general for the Police Department, gets heavy support, overwhelming among black New Yorkers."

From May 14 - 20, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,082 New York City voters with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and the nation as a public service and for research.
