(CNN) - The majority of Americans oppose the NSA's bulk collection of telephone records, and a majority also don't believe the president's proposals to reform the agency will change anything.
A new Pew Research Center and USA Today poll found 53 percent of the adults surveyed disapprove of the NSA's phone spying tactics.
Just 40 percent approve.
And for those who had heard about the president's proposed reforms for data collection, an overwhelming 73 percent said the changes won't increase privacy protections.
The survey was conducted from Jan. 15 through the 19th, with telephone interviews from more than 1,500 adults.
It has a sampling error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
