Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White of New Mexico was interviewed by the Santa Fe Reporter about his stance on reinstating the death penalty, quoting POS survey.

I do. There’s a poll that was done by Public Opinion Strategies in February of this year that showed 67 percent of the voters in New Mexico supported the death penalty. It was a straightforward question: Do you support capital punishment for the most heinous murders? Everybody I’ve talked to believes that’s very consistent with how New Mexico has approached the death penalty over the years.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula News reports on Marymount College’s plans to expand and the poll conducted by Public Opinion Strategies to assess the views of people living in the area around the school.

Peter Brown of MWW Group, the college’s public relations firm, said Wednesday that Public Opinion Strategies sampled 300 “likely” registered RPV voters and “over-sampled” 25 people in five precincts near the campus “to make sure we had statistically reliable votes.” From those calls, an 80-percent support rate was garnered.

According to Brown, when conducting calls, the pollsters discussed every feature of the project, from libraries to dorms, and alternated questions between the project’s positives and negatives.
