A Plurality (Or More) of Britons Favor Reintroduction of the Death Penalty

| 0 Comments
Will Dahlgreen at YouGov has this article stating that according to that organization's survey, "50 years after the last execution in Britain, people still tend to support the reintroduction of the death penalty, by 45-39%."

However, as noted by in this post by Peyton M. Craighill and Scott Clement at The Fix, the WaPo's political blog (previously mentioned on this blog here) YouGov polls a self-selected sample, one of the worst ways to do polling.  Actual support is likely much higher, as has been indicated in recent years by legitimate polls.  See posts of 2010 and 2013.
