National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted August 8-9, 2018
By Rasmussen Reports


1* Edward Snowden, a former employee of a government contractor, has admitted to leaking information about the National Security Agency’s phone and e-mail surveillance of millions of Americans. Some say he is a heroic whistleblower. Others say he is a traitor who endangered lives and national security. Is Snowden a hero, a traitor or somewhere in between?


2* Should Snowden be tried for treason if he returns to the United States, or should President Trump pardon him?
