Half of all Americans support Ted Cruz’s plan to patrol Muslim neighborhoods
A new Morning Consult poll notes that 49 percent of American voters asked in the days after the Brussels terror attack said they agreed with Cruz’s call to “empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized.”

“Have the terrorists won?” the press release announcing the poll’s findings asked, explaining that “A majority of Americans voters appear to be willing to do whatever it takes, even backing what amounts to a revocation of essential American liberties and ideals, in an effort to keep us safe.”

Another poll out this week confirms that more Americans are in line with the Texas Tea Party senator’s direction of handling potential terror threats within U.S. borders than are with New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton, who blasted Cruz’s “lack of knowledge” and called on him to “shut up,” arguing that profiling and mass surveillance hurts counterterrorism efforts.
