When asked whether there should be "a mandatory quarantine in the U.S. for travelers from Ebola affected West African nations," 94% of Today Show viewers responded "yes" - although the CDC has said it will not implement a mandatory quarantine.

Gov. Cuomo of New York backed off more stringent procedures for recent travelers to West Africa after pushback from the Obama administration and now CNN'S Vaughn Sterling reports that New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie is following suit.

The Today Show poll, conducted on Facebook, received over 7,500 votes and shows that despite the CDC and Obama administration's assurances, an overwhelming majority of Americans would prefer that travelers were quarantined.
