Another Misleading Poll

I have been told that the Public Policy Institute of California is going to release a poll that supposedly shows a majority against the death penalty. As I have noted many times on this blog, you get dramatically different results depending on how you ask the question. See this post.
Sure enough, PPIC used the skewed-to-the-max wording that implies the respondent is being asked to specify a single punishment for all first-degree murders. If that were the question, I would say LWOP myself. But it is not.
