Contributing sentiments towards policy:

45% : "And direct the DOJ to not only no longer seek the death penalty, but to dismantle the death row facility at Terre Haute."
43% : "By the way, congratulations to ya'll ending the death penalty here," Biden said according to Politico.
42% : These issues also seemed to trouble Attorney General Merrick Garland, who said during his Senate confirmation hearing in February that he had "great pause about the death penalty."
42% : "I am very concerned about the large number of exonerations that have occurred through DNA evidence and otherwise, not only in death penalty convictions, but also in other convictions.
41% : Friedman also noted that racial disparities persist in death penalty cases across the country.
40% : The president can urge Congress to provide federal incentives for state and local prosecutors to avoid seeking capital punishment."
40% : "The death penalty has no place in our society," Pressley told Yahoo News. "
39% : And some advocates note that it may be a politically advantageous time for Biden to seize the issue: A Gallup poll released in June 2020 showed that a "record-low 54 [percent] of Americans consider the death penalty to be morally acceptable, marking a six-percentage point decrease since last year."
38% : He no longer supported capital punishment and pledged to push for legislation to eliminate the punishment at the federal level and incentivize states to do the same.
37% : As an overall matter, [the death penalty] is grossly broken.
36% : Now, about halfway into his first year as president, death penalty opponents want Biden to follow through on his promise to work toward abolishing capital punishment.
35% : On the campaign trail in 2019, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden signaled a potential shift in his longtime support of the death penalty, when he made an offhand comment to a voter about New Hampshire's abolition of the death penalty.
35% : But death penalty opponents have pointed out that a moratorium is a temporary pause on the death penalty, as evidenced by the one that preceded the string of executions under Trump.
32% : But perhaps more permanently, Biden can back a bill in the House that would abolish the death penalty at the federal level and require that any person on death row be resentenced.
18% : The legislation is co-sponsored by Rep. Ayanna Pressley, an outspoken critic of capital punishment.
