This just in: Texans support the Death Penalty

It’s not the most exciting news you ever heard. However, a recent Texas Tribune poll found that Texans still support the use of the death penalty (“UT/TT Poll: Texans Stand Behind Death Penalty“).

Poll of support for the death penalty.

It was very interesting to me that while nearly three out of four Texans support the death penalty, a bare majority believe it has been applied fairly.

Only 51% of those questioned believed the death penalty had been fairly applied in Texas.

How serious these concerns of about fairness might be is not clear. However, Texans clearly feel a little uneasy about our legal system as it makes its most dramatic decisions.
