A majority of US adults disagree with the recent US Supreme Court decision that ruled people arrested and charged with any offense may be strip-searched before being admitted to jail, finds a new IBOPE Inteligência survey.

While 54% overall, 66% of Democrats, and 58% of independents disagree with the ruling in Florence v. Board of Chosen Freeholders, 59% of Republicans agree with it. Also, 18-29 year-olds are much more likely than those over 65 years-old to disagree with the decision (60% to 48%).

The Supreme Court case referenced is No. 10–945. Argued October 12, 2011—Decided April 2, 2012

IBOPE Inteligência conducted an online survey of 1,978 US adults. The margin of error is +/- 2.2 percentage points. A sampling of IBOPE Inteligência's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the US, was invited to participate from April 5-9. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender and education to more accurately reflect the population.
