NEW YORK - Americans generally seem OK with X-ray scanners -- but there's less support for the pat-downs.
About two-thirds of Americans surveyed by The Washington Post and ABC News said they support using the full-body scanners at airports to increase security. But half said the more rigorous pat-downs go too far.
There's been talk on the Internet about a passenger revolt, with passengers rejecting the X-ray scan and opting instead for the pat-down, which takes longer. But so far, there's little, if any, indication of any widespread action.
Many travelers say the scans and pat-downs aren't much of an inconvenience, and that it makes them feel safer.
One traveler who was given a pat-down this morning at New York's LaGuardia Airport says the underwire of her bra probably tripped the metal detector. Jeannine St. Amand of Canada says she'll wear a different bra next time.
She says the pat-down was professional, and done by a female agent.
