Majority Still Support Capital Punishment

Filed under: Capital Punishment,Politics — acepundit @ 7:12 pm

The Death Penalty Information Center, a group that opposes capital punishment, conducted a survey and found that 62% of respondents favor the use of capital punishment.

The results are hardly surprising as Americans have steadily supported the death penalty despite the group’s saying support has eroded, pointing to a decline in the number of executions carried out in recent years.

However, recent legal challenges have contributed more to the decline of executions than public support, and this year the federal courts have upheld the constitutionality of lethal injection. Bad news for the citizens of death row.
