The result of the bi-yearly survey will be included in a National Science Foundation report to President Barack Obama and US lawmakers. One in three respondents said science should get more funding from the government. Nearly 90 percent said the benefits of science outweigh any dangers, and about the same number expressed interest in learning about medical discoveries.
