A new poll shows that the American people are conflicted about Edward Snowden's decision to disclose sensitive and controversial surveillance programs.
The Time magazine poll shows a majority of Americans believe Snowden did the right thing (by a 54-30 margin), but a similar majority says officials who leak such sensitive information should be prosecuted (53-28).
In other words, there are a significant number of Americans who are both lauding Snowden and say people who do what he did should face jail time.
That latter question, it should be noted, made no mention of Snowden and was asked before his specific leaks were mentioned. So it's possible that some people think leakers in general should be prosecuted but that Snowden shouldn't.
(The other question didn't mention Snowden by name, either, but made specific reference to the information he leaked.)
