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?

2* Edward 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?
