Oh, are they supposed to be guilty before we execute them?

Courtesy of Steve Hall, we learn that a new Texas Poll is being released over the weekend. Among the findings:

“Do you think Texas has executed an innocent person?”

Yes: 70 percent.

“Do you support the death penalty?”

Yes: 75 percent.

Worse, 52% opposed even a moratorium until problems could be fixed. Ugh.

The good news is that 44 percent supported a moratorium on executions. The last Texas poll showed only 41 percent supported a moratorium. We are making progress and by 2007 or 2009 we could achieve a moratorium.
