New Polls on Capital Punishment

The most recent Gallup Poll found current support for the death penalty at 74%, down from 80% in 1994.  Those supporting the death penalty decreased to 56% when respondents were given the choice of life in prison without parole, down from about 61% in 1997.  Compared to more recent years, however, support for the death penalty increased slightly in the most recent poll.  [Mark Godsey]
