(Chicago) – April 20, 2012. American voters remain confident in the Secret Service’s ability to protect President Barack Obama and his family despite the recent scandal involving prostitutes in Columbia.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 81% of U.S. registered voters are confident in the Secret Service’s protection of the First Family.
They have mixed feelings at this point whether the agents involved in the incident should be criminally prosecuted.
Likely U.S. Voters believe the Secret Service agents involved in the prostitute incident should face criminal charges, but slightly more (38%) disagree. A sizable number (30%) aren’t sure at this point.
The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on April 18-19, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
