    Survey Says TSA Doing Good Job - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.

    The Transportation Security Administration has been one of the favorite targets for media and late night comedians in the past few years, prompting Congress to explore options for improving the TSA’s image. A recent survey regarding the TSA, however, revealed some surprising results.

    According to several reports, a Gallup poll indicates that 54% of Americans rate the TSA’s security measures to be good or excellent, and another 30% find their performance to be fair. Among those who have flown within the past year, 57% say that the TSA is doing a good or excellent job. The survey also revealed that 85% agree that "the procedures are extremely effective, very effective or somewhat effective at preventing acts of terrorism”. A TSA official says, “This positive report reaffirms TSA’s commitment to carrying out these responsibilities with efficiency, integrity and in a customer friendly manner.”
