New York City voters overwhelmingly support the New York Police Department's anti-terrorism campaign, even as provisions of it have come under criticism from civil rights groups who question the legality of how police target Muslims, reports Reuters.

The Quinnipiac University poll, released on Tuesday, found respondents approved by 63 percent to 31 the way New York police are doing their job and said by 82 percent to 14 percent the NYPD has been effective combating terrorism.

The poll of 964 New York City voters showed Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly won better than 2-to-1 approval ratings and voters said police act appropriately in how they deal with Muslims by a margin of 58 percent to 29 percent.
