Would Zimmerman still get 48% DU support for murder if his name were in the title? [View all]

Recently, there was a poll of DUers regarding Zimmerman's murder.

In it, 48% of all DUers who responded supported by plurality all 3 of the following clauses:

(1) Zimmerman broke no laws.

(2) Zimmerman acted reasonably.

(3) Florida laws relating to any of his actions need no changes

Zimmermann broke no current laws, acted reasonably and Florida laws relating to any of his actions need no changes

15 (48%)

But while Zimmerman got a lot of support for his murder in that DU poll, his name was left out of the title, which may have skewed the poll results somewhat, creating a false and misleading impression of what DU is all about.

So, I'll put the the question before the wider DU community:

Remember, to answer "yes" you need to agree with all 3 of the above clauses of support, not just 1 or 2 of them.

Do you support Zimmerman?
