New Poll: Americans Support Death Penalty By Gas Or Electrocution

Posted: Updated:

Despite the botched execution of Clayton Lockett, American support for the death penalty remains unwavering.

Twenty percent of those polled were in favor of the gas chamber, whereas eighteen percent would choose the electric chair.

Watch for more results from the poll above.
