A new Harris Poll reveals new information about the TSA program called Pre-Check.

If you're a frequent airline traveler, you have probably heard about the speedy program. But, 41% of Americans say they've never heard of the fast pass screening program.

Of more than 2,000 respondents, 37% think pre-check applicants should have to pass a drug test--which is not a requirement.

Half of those surveyed said they think TSA screeners make air travel safer. While a small percentage said they are somewhat or a lot less safe.

With the pre-check screening, passengers aren't required to remove their shoes or belts, nor take their laptops out of the case.
