According to a Pew Research Center/USA Today survey, President Barack Obama’s Jan. 17, 2014, NSA speech had little influence over the American people.
“President Obama’s speech on Friday outlining changes to the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone and Internet data did not register widely with the public,” the study said. “Half say they have heard nothing at all about his proposed changes to the NSA, and another 41 percent say they heard only a little bit.”
Further, those who actually heard about the NSA changes don’t think they’ll have any impact.
“Among those that did hear about the proposals, large majorities of Republicans (86 percent) and independents (78 percent) say these changes will not make much difference when it comes to protecting people’s privacy,” it said. “Among Democrats who have heard of the changes, 56 percent say they won’t make much difference.”
