Following the poll earlier this week that found Americans weren’t too bothered by the NSA spying on them, a new survey from Reuters sought to learn how the populace at large feels about the “traitor vs. hero” debate over Edward Snowden. The answer once more: Meh. Though 31 percent see him as a “patriot” compared to 23 percent who say he’s a traitor, 46 percent say they don’t know. Snowden says he’s neither, and as posited earlier, it’s a bullshit choice. Those 46 percent are onto something.
