Poll finds Oklahomans back security measures

A majority of respondents say they would surrender some freedoms for greater security.

In general, Oklahomans seem willing to give up a little freedom in exchange for security, the latest Oklahoma Poll shows.

The poll asked 1,060 likely voters statewide "How willing are you to surrender certain freedoms in exchange for greater security?"
