Asking the Correct Question in a Death Penalty Poll
I have long been critical on this blog of the way major polling organizations phrase their questions on the death penalty. Professors Joseph Bessette and Andrew Sinclair of Claremont McKenna College have done it right. They have this article at Real Clear Policy explaining their work and results. The full technical report is here. (Hint: no one familiar with my prior posts will be surprised at the results.)
I will likely have more to say on this, but I wanted to get this important result out to our readers immediately.
