New York, Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

New York, Mar.14 (ANI): Most New York city voters think the New York Police Department has been effective in fighting terrorism, and a majority say that the New York Police Department (NYPD) has acted appropriately in its dealing with Muslims.


According to a new Quinnipiac University survey, 82 percent of respondents thought that the NYPD had been effective in its counter-terrorism efforts.


Asked whether the NYPD dealt with Muslims fairly or targeted them unfairly, the New York Daily News quoted 58 percent, as saying that they thought the NYPD was appropriate, while 29 percent thought police were unfair and 13 percent didn't know or had no answer.


Overall, 63 percent of those surveyed approved of the way police are doing their job, although when asked about the controversial policy for stopping, questioning and frisking people, only 46 percent approved while 49 percent disapproved.


Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said: "People think the cops do a good job."


The Quinnipiac polled 964 New York City voters from March 6-11.


The margin of error is plus or minus 3.2 percentage points. (ANI)
