National Survey of
1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted July 2, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news stories about the National Security Agency surveillance program?
Snowden, a former employee of a government contractor, has admitted to leaking
information about NSA phone and e-mail surveillance programs. 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, somewhere in between, or is it too
early to tell?
3* Regardless of what you think of Edward Snowden, is it good or bad for the nation that the American people now know more about the NSA surveillance program?
4* How likely is it that the public disclosure of the NSA phone and email surveillance programs has hurt U.S. national security?
5* How likely is it that the NSA phone and email surveillance programs have inappropriately violated the privacy of innocent Americans?
