SAN FRANCISCO – A slight majority of Americans say Apple should unlock the iPhone used by one of the killers in the San Bernardino, Calif. massacre.

A survey concluded Sunday by the non-partisan Pew Research Center found that 51% of Americans say Apple should assist the FBI in its efforts to unlock the iPhone belonging to Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the shooters.

TL;DR: Most Americans are retards, who love to fellate fascist cock.

It isn't a matter of Apple unlocking a door. It's a matter of Apple being forced to engineer a way of retrofitting phones to accept a backdoor and be unlocked ad infinitum.

The PUBLIC in general... are pretty stupid.

Someone mentioned in another thread, so many people just don't understand any of the technical aspects of the issue... this leads to more emotional evaluation of the situation.  "Apple is helping terrorists!!" is what most laypeople are getting out of this situation.

Local libtard news channel in upstate NY ran a Facebook poll today and last I checked it was 56% siding with Apple.

Every modern poll is a sample of people too stupid to be on the no-call list or to hang up on pollsters.

In another recent poll, 87 out of 100 cats agreed that dogs are poopy-heads.

My poll says: Ask stupid people a stupid question and you will get stupid answers.

I'd be surprised if less than half of Americans didnt stomp the pedal for "DEY SHOULD CATCH DEM TERRIES NO MATTER WAT"

The "public" is not noted for its intelligence, or the depth of its understanding.

"What time does the game start, and how much beer do we have?"

Look who's leading the Republican presidential race and we know Americans are stupid.  Not really a shock.

Pew may be incorrect.

FoxNews  article tonight suggests otherwise  ( no link, just heard as I was passing thru the den)

I wonder which question they are asking.

Probably more like: Apple is keeping the FBI from protecting you from future terrorist attacks! Do you think what Apple is doing is bad?

More to do with ignorance than stupidity in many cases.  Most people don't understand what's going on and thus make an uninformed decision.

80% Rule in action.

Those two conditions occur together, more often than not.
