NBC/WSJ poll: Gates more at fault

From NBC's Mark Murray
Here's our first tease of tonight's NBC/WSJ poll: By a 27%-11% margin, Americans say that Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. was more at fault for his recent arrest than the Cambridge police officer was.

Video: TODAY's Matt Lauer talks to conservative columnist Michelle Malkin about the arrest of black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates and President Obama's comment about the arrest.

But a greater number, 29%, believe that both were equally at fault. And 31% say they didn't know enough to have an opinion.

The full NBC/WSJ poll comes out at 6:30 pm ET on NBC Nightly News and on MSNBC.com.
