One girl shouts "LET THE BANDIT BE" UPDATE: Rasmussen poll shows Zimmerman approval up by 25%

Last edited Tue Jun 19, 2012, 02:27 PM - Edit history (1)

YES, my subject line is a little tribute to FRANK. Kudos to those of you who noticed. It's from THIS song:





And as time has passed and more evidence has been released, people’s feelings about Zimmerman have eased.

In late March, while people were still marching in the streets demanding his arrest, 33 percent of the country believed Zimmerman was guilty of murder, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports.

The same poll showed that fewer than half that number — 15 percent — believed Zimmerman had acted in self-defense.

Two months later, however, those numbers had flip-flopped. In a May 19-20 Rasmussen poll, 40 percent said they believed Zimmerman had acted in self-defense vs. 24 percent who called him a murderer.

1. But maybe that's because of the RW propaganda campaign.

Zimmerman is a danger to the NRA/ALEC. What if victims of shootings where SYG is used as a defense mount a class action suit?

2. There's no limit to the stupidity of the American public.

And that poll proves it.

3. Mega-props for that FZ reference.

Great guitar work and a just plain funny song.

"I heard he's on the looo-oo-ooose.."

4. Just another reason why I never trust polls.

Not to mention this poll is a month old, before the idiocy of he and his wife hiding donations hit the media, and also, is being reported in Murdoch's conservative rag, The Boston Herald.

similar to the Presidential one.

5. I think this FZ song would be far more appropriate to describe Zimmerman:

9. It must be just what they all need.

Punky's Whips is pretty good, too.

Thanks, Amerigo Vespucci!

Take it away, Don!

10. Fortunately the only votes that will count will be the judge and jury.

At least, Zimmerman won't be able to claim that the publicity has made his conviction more likely.

No one has seen all the evidence yet. No one knows how or whether Zimmerman will testify. No one knows whether he will decide to plead, especially now that his wife has been charged with perjury.
