Attorney General William Barr hopes to make it easier and quicker to sentence mass shooters to death, and most Americans think that’s a good idea.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of American Adults favor a proposal to speed up the death penalty process for those guilty of mass shootings. Just 21% are opposed, but just as many (21%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on September 3-4, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
