NBC poll: 80% said it was the right decision to kill bin Laden

A new NBC News poll lends insight into how Americans feel about the bin Laden raid and President Obama's handling of it.

In his interview on "60 Minutes," President Obama admitted he didn't lose any sleep over the possibility of taking out Osama bin Laden.

"Justice was done," Obama said. "And I think that anyone who would question that the perpetrator of mass murder on American soil didn't deserve what he got needs to have their head examined.”

It appears most of the American public agrees with him -- at least the part about taking out bin Laden.

According to a new NBC poll, 80 percent of Americans said it was the right decision to kill the al Qaeda leader versus capture him. Eleven percent said was the wrong decision, and 9 percent were not sure.

The NBC poll -- which will be released in full tonight at 6:30 pm ET -- was conducted May 5-7 of 800 adults (100 reached by cell phone), and it has a margin of error of plus-minus 3.5 percentage points.
