Thanks to Talking Points Memo for the chart that illustrates recent Pew polling. It illustrates sharply the downward trend of support for the death penalty.

The drop is less pronounced among Republicans. So you could conclude that states that have a growing Republican inclination (hmmm, who might that be?) might be on the back end of the rend. Back end of a trend? Hmmm, who could that be?

Anyway, interesting.  Overall, the majority continues to support the death penalty, at 56 percent in favor.
