    United States Capital Punishment Public Opinion Polling

    Half say death penalty not imposed often enough

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Gallup's annual Crime Survey finds that 64% of Americans continue to support the use of the death penalty for persons convicted of murder, while 29% oppose it -- continuing a trend that has shown little change over the last seven years.

    US continues to support death penalty

    MOST Americans, and notably men, whites and Republicans, continue to support the death penalty, according to a Gallup poll published overnight.

    According to the survey carried out in October among 1,025 people, some 64 per cent of Americans say they are in favour of capital punishment compared to some 29 per cent against.

    However asked about the alternative of life imprisonment with no possibility of parole, the public split with 49 percent saying the death penalty remained the best option, compared to 46 per cent who opted for life in jail.

    The survey was unveiled on the same day that a jury in Connecticut sentenced to death a paroled burglar convicted of the notoriously gruesome home invasion murders of a mother and two daughters in 2007.

    The jury recommended a death sentence for each of the six capital charges against 47-year-old Steven Hayes, in a rare move in the northeastern state which has only carried out one execution in 35 years.

    Half of those asked (49 per cent) in the Gallup survey said the death penalty is not imposed often enough, while 18 per cent said it is used too often.

    Similarly 58 per cent said the death penalty was fairly applied compared with 36 per cent who said it was applied unfairly, saying for example that some minority groups were more likely to be sentenced to death than others.

    Some 71 per cent of men overwhelmingly said they were in favour of the death penalty, with 69 per cent of white people saying they approved of capital punishment and 78 per cent of Republican voters.

    Some 58 per cent of women said they agreed with executing offenders, as did 55 per cent of non-whites and 55 per cent of those who identified themselves as Democratic supporters.

    Americans have been mostly overwhelmingly in support of the death penalty since 1936 when Gallup began to carry out its surveys on the issue.

    In 1936, 59 per cent of Americans declared they supported capital punishment. The figures dipped in the late 1950s through to the 1970s and reached an all-time low of 42 per cent support in 1966.

    But by 1994, 80 per cent of Americans said they were in favour of the death penalty.

    The poll was carried out between October 7 and 10 by telephone among 1,025 adults and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    83% Back Death Penalty; 81% Think Innocent Have Been Executed

    Most Americans support the death penalty in murder cases, but are divided on whether it acts as a deterrent for potential criminals, says a survey by the Angus Reid Public Opinion firm. The online survey of a representative sample of 1,006 adults found that a high proportion of respondents believe that innocent people have been executed in the United States.

    Some 83 percent of respondents support punishing homicide with the death penalty, while 13 percent are opposed. A majority would also use capital punishment to punish rape (62%) and kidnapping (51%), but not armed robbery (40%). While 39 per cent think capital punishment acts as a deterrent, 35 per cent disagree. Republicans (52%) are more likely to believe that the death penalty deters potential criminals than Independents (40%) and Democrats (34%). Four-in-five respondents (81%) believe innocent people have been executed in the U.S.; only six per cent think that this has never happened.

    Poll shows large support for Conn's death penalty

    HARTFORD, Conn.
    A new statewide poll released Thursday shows support for Connecticut's death penalty is growing among voters, despite efforts by some legislators to abolish capital punishment.

    Sixty-seven percent of registered voters favor the death penalty, a new high for the state, according to Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz. An earlier Quinnipiac survey in October found 65 percent supported the death penalty.

    The 2007 home invasion in Cheshire, where a mother and her two daughters were killed, appears to have generated support for the death penalty. A 2005 poll showed 59 percent supported capital punishment, Schwartz said.

    "Historically, voters favor the death penalty about two-to-one when they are asked a simple yes-no question. When they are offered the choice, however, between the death penalty and life in prison with no chance of parole, voters have been evenly divided," Schwartz said. "In Connecticut, the Cheshire home invasion murders appear to have changed that. Now voters back the death penalty no matter how we ask the question."

    The General Assembly's Judiciary Committee this week held a public hearing on legislation that would abolish the death penalty for crimes committed when or after the repeal takes effect. A similar bill passed in 2009 but then-Gov. M. Jodi Rell vetoed it. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy reiterated this week that he would sign such legislation into law.

    Both the chief state's attorney and the chief public defender warned state lawmakers that making the repeal prospective will not guarantee that the 10 men on death row will still be executed. They said challenges could be brought questioning the legality of creating two classes of people, one subject to the death penalty and the other not.

    Thursday's poll shows that 74 percent of voters support the death penalty for Steven Hayes, one of the two suspects in the Cheshire case who was convicted and sentenced to death last year. Seventy-two percent of voters support the death penalty for Hayes' co-defendant, Joshua Komisarjevsky, who still faces trial and has not been found guilty.

    The same poll shows 79 percent of voters support allowing a doctor to prescribe marijuana for medical purposes. Sixty-five percent support decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana, a proposal made by Malloy.

    Voters also back proposed legislation that would allow liquor stores to open on Sundays by a 66 percent to 31 percent margin. Schwartz said that marks the highest level of support for the question. Last March, 56 percent supported Sunday sales while 39 percent opposed it. Malloy has said he supports Sunday liquor sales.

    Fifty percent of voters oppose allowing grocery stores to sell wine or hard liquor, while 43 percent support the idea.

    The telephone survey of 1,693 voters, conducted March 1 through 7, has a margin of sampling error of 2.4 percentage points.

    Support for capital punishment is overwhelming

    North Carolina voter support of the death penalty for violent offenders remains high, according to a new poll released today by the Civitas Institute.

    Seventy percent of voters said they support the death penalty for violent offenders in North Carolina. Twenty-four percent said they oppose it, and 6 percent said they do not know or have no opinion.

    Despite a de-facto moratorium on the death penalty since 2006, support for it has consistently remained high throughout the history of Civitas polling. A January 2011 Civitas Institute poll revealed a record 71 percent of North Carolina voters support the death penalty.

    Moreover, this continues to be a bipartisan issue with 80 percent of Republicans, 69 percent of unaffiliated voters, and 63 percent of Democrats in support.

    "If and when the legislature moves to repeal the misnamed 'Racial Justice Act' and end the moratorium on the death penalty, the people of North Carolina will be solidly behind them," said Civitas Institute President Francis De Luca.

    The Civitas Poll is the only regular live-caller poll of critical issues facing North Carolina. For more information on Civitas polling see http://www.nccivitas.org/category/poll/.

    Full Text of Question:

    "Do you support or oppose the death penalty for violent offenders in North Carolina?"

    Total Support – 70%

    Total Oppose – 24%

    Strongly Support – 49%

    Somewhat Support – 21%

    Somewhat Oppose – 8%

    Strongly Oppose – 16%

    Don't Know/No Opinion – 6%

    Refused – 1%

    This poll of 600 registered general election voters in North Carolina was conducted May 10-11, 2011 by National Research, Inc. of Holmdel, NJ. All respondents were part of a fully representative sample of registered voters in North Carolina. For purposes of this study, voters interviewed had to have voted in two of the past four general elections or were newly registered to vote since 2008.

    The confidence interval associated with a sample of this size is such that: 95 percent of the time, results from 600 interviews (registered voters) will be within +-4% of the "True Values." True Values refer to the results obtained if it were possible to interview every person in North Carolina who had voted in two of the past four general elections or were newly registered to vote since 2008.

    Even many anti-DP people would change their tune if their loved one were killed. Unless murderers can find a way to bring back the dead there will always be support for the DP!

    In Germany we have a saying like you can trust only statistics you faked on your own. Iīm sure they blame the way the poll had been done (questions, interviewd persons, ...).

    So, are you pro DP? I've heard the population of Europe isn't so anti-DP and may have quite a lot of pro DP people. It's actually the elites in Europe that banned the DP since a vote was never taken by the people.

    It's kind of ironic since if you look historically Europe has executed more people than any other place on earth!
