There is reasonable likelihood that the military judge presiding over Manning's military trial will agree with her government employer, find Manning guilty as charged, and sentence him to life in prison, or possibly death (even though the prosecution isn't seeking the death penalty, the judge might have the power to impose it). 

 

At that point, if that's where it goes, there will no longer be any legal doubt that Manning is an enemy of the state.

And there will no longer be any moral doubt that the state, the U.S. government, is an enemy of the people.

This is not yet a widely shared perception, apparently, although there are many strong voices articulating it in a variety of forms, mostly in alternative media. 

 

But what about the American people?  What does public opinion polling show to be the public's opinion of Bradley Manning?   An Associated Press piece filed from London June 4 begins, "It's rare for an American to generate more sympathy abroad than at home, but Bradley Manning and his trial [sic] are unique in a host of ways." 

 

The AP report offers no basis for the conclusion about relative sympathy here and abroad, but a quick google search for public opinion polling about Bradley Manning turned up nothing.  Further search of the websites of the Pew Research Center, Gallup, Zogby, Nate Silver's 538, CNN, Ipsos/Reuters, Quinnipiac, and six other polling organizations also turned up nothing.

Apparently there has been NO significant polling of the public on one of the more significant public issues of the day.   Is that because the public doesn't care (how would we know?)?
