More than half of Americans, and a slightly higher percentage of football fans, disapprove of how the NFL has handled the recent reports about domestic violence by several of its players, a new NBC News/Marist Poll has found. But just 29 percent of adults and 32 percent of football fans say Commissioner Roger Goodell should resign, while an overwhelming 85 percent say the recent news hasn't changed how much football they'll watch.

In the South, however, 51 percent of Americans say it's right.

The five-month breach affected payment systems in Home Depot's brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S. and Canada but did not appear to have affected purchases made on its website.
