CNN seems a bit upset as they say "only" 4 in ten. Those 4 in 10 should be escorted to the border and stripped of their citizenship and never let back in.

"Washington (CNN) – Although worries about terrorism have edged up following the Boston Marathon bombings, a new national poll indicates only four in ten Americans say they are willing to give up some civil liberties to fight terrorism."

Would of been interesting to see what the political background of that 40% were...though after 9/11 it was about 54% that were willing to give up civil liberties for more security.

That is called an assumption, which it doesn't matter what you think because the poll doesn't answer that question. So all we can take from it is that 40% of Americans, regardless of political point of view, prefer safety over civil liberties.

I can't answer that question for you because safety is a subjective term.
