New numbers from ABC News show the public, once again, deciding that WikiLeaks has harmed the public interest by releasing confidential State Department cables:
More than two-thirds of Americans say WikiLeaks has harmed the public interest by releasing classified U.S diplomatic documents, a sharp negative turn in views of the website's actions - and nearly six in 10 say its founder, Julian Assange, should face criminal charges as a result.
This comes after a Pew survey last week showed 60 percent of respondents feeling that way, vs. 31 percent who said the WikiLeaks dump serves the public interest.
As ABC's polling guru, Gary Langer, points out in his write-up, Julian Assange's arrest on rape charges can't help his image, or that of WikiLeaks and Cablegate.
