"New poll purports to show "New Low in Preference for the Death Penalty""

Doug Berman has this post at Sentencing Law & Policy. From his excerpt:

Given a choice between the two options, 52 percent pick life in prison as the preferred punishment, while 42 percent favor the death penalty – the fewest in polls dating back 15 years. The result follows a botched execution by lethal injection in Oklahoma in late April.
