Opinions On Strauss-Kahn Haven’t Changed Despite Dismissal Of Charges

Many Americans haven’t paid much attention to the case of former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and most of those who have are unwilling to judge whether or not he was guilty of the sexual assault charges against him — the charges recently dismissed by a New York court. But the latest Economist/YouGovPoll suggests that what those with an opinion believe now is no different from what they believed about the case in early July: most are withholding judgment but more think he is guilty than innocent.

31% now say they would vote guilty if they were on the jury judging DSK; 14%would vote for acquittal. Nearly two months ago, the results were similar. But in both cases, more than half of those who had heard of the case said they just didn’t know enough to judge his guilt or innocence.
