As news broke Thursday that NSA leaker Edward Snowden was granted temporary asylum in Russia, a new poll shows that a majority of Americans view him as a whistleblower rather than a traitor.

Asked whether Snowden is more of a whistleblower or more of a traitor, those polled split 55 percent to 34 percent for whistleblower, according to a Quinnipiac survey released Thursday.
