More oppose death penalty

More than one-third of Americans now oppose the death penalty — the highest level in nearly 40 years, according to a Gallup poll.

Those who believe the death penalty is being applied fairly and those who say it isn't used often enough are at the lowest levels in a decade, underscoring significant changes in attitudes.

The 35 percent opposition is the highest since March 1972.
