Source TheAge

A survey of 1000 Australians by pollster UMR Research was taken between December 16 and 21 indicates that only one-quarter of Australian voters support Ms Gillard's view that the recent WikiLeaks diplomatic cables should have remained secret.

The findings show 59 per cent support WikiLeaks' action in making the cables public and 25 per cent oppose it.

63 per cent of voters oppose any prosecution Julian Assange for publishing "confidential" documents, with just 19 per cent believing he should be prosecuted.
