Death Penalty Info Center Releases New Poll - More Favor Life Over Death

Today, the Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) held a press conference to release details about their latest poll concerning capital punishment in America today.  The DPIC describes its efforts as one of "the most comprehensive studies ever conducted of Americans’ views on the death penalty."

The poll itself was done by Lake Research Partners.  Those polled?  1500 registered voters.  Results?   Sixty-one percent (61%) opt for something other than the death sentence for murder with prefered alternative punishments being life with no possibility of parole and with restitution to the victim’s family (39%), life with no possibility of parole (13%), or life with the possibility of parole (9%).

See DPIC for more details.  Here is one chart summarizing their findings:
