Utica, NY (WIBX) – A majority of U.S. voters support President Obama’s recent announcement to keep Guantanamo prison camp for suspected terrorists open indefinitely. That’s according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll that shows that number to be 58 percent of likely voters. According to the report, only 21 percent of people support closing the terrorist prison camp in Cuba.

When it comes to Obama’s announcement to hold military tribunals at the prison rather than in U.S courts, the poll finds that 60 percent of people favor the move, while 27 percent disagree, and support U.S. court trials instead. The poll also finds that 49 percent of people say they support the president’s current position to continue to imprison suspected terrorists deemed dangerous, without sufficient evidence to convict them, while only 26 percent disagree with the president’s position. According to officials with Rasmussen Reports, 1,000 likely voters were surveyed nationwide for these results from March 10 – 11, 2011.
