The majority of Americans believe that NSA leaker Edward Snowden is a whistle-blower and a hero, not a traitor.
Snowden was supported by 55% of those surveyed by researchers from Quinnipiac University, Connecticut.
Of those who backed Snowden’s decision there was equal representation from almost every gender, social group and political persuasion.
Only 34% of those surveyed said they believed Snowden had betrayed his country, and 11% did not have an opinion.
The attitudes toward protecting privacy have shifted significantly lately. 45% of respondents said the government’s anti-terrorism policies went too far compared with 25% in 2010.
Meanwhile, Venezuela remains the “most likely” asylum choice for Snowden, yet it remain unclear how Snowden will make it there.
