The Trial of Michael Jackson’s Doctor: By Two To One, Those With An Opinion Would Vote “Guilty”

October 13, 2011, 8:00 PM GMT+0

More than eight in ten American adults are following the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson more than two years ago. And in the latest Economist/YouGov Poll, twice as many say that if they were on the jury they would vote “guilty” than “not guilty.” 

Nearly half say they have not yet formed an opinion.

Women are more likely than men and blacks are more likely than whites to say they think Murray is guilty.
