Poll: No partisan divide over Boston marathon investigation

Washington (CNN) - It's rare to find an issue on which Democrats and Republicans agree, but according to a new national poll, they see eye-to-eye on how the Boston Marathon bombing investigation was handled.

An ABC News/Washington Post survey indicates that two-thirds of Americans approve of how the federal government investigated the bombings. The poll's Tuesday release comes on the first anniversary of the attacks near the finish line of the marathon, which killed three people and injured at least 264.
