An overwhelming number of Americans think it's likely Pakistan knew where Osama bin Laden was hiding, while adminsitration officials are still avoiding any finger-pointing.
Roughly 84 percent of American adults think it's at least somewhat likely that high-level officials in the Pakistani government knew where bin Laden was hiding, according to a newly-released Rassmusen Reports poll.
The poll found Republicans are more distrusting of the Pakistani government than Democrats or independents. Thirty-two percent of Republicans view Pakistan as an enemy of the U.S., compared to 22 percent of Democrats and 24 percent of independents voters.
Roughly 5 percent of those polled regard Pakistan as an ally of the U.S., compared to 15 percent in August 2010.
Just 8 percent said the U.S. should have gotten permission from Pakistan to launch the raid that killed bin Laden.
The survey of 1,000 adults was conduction on May 4 and May 5, 2011, with 3-point margin of error.
