The American Jewish Committee, which conducts regular surveys of American Jewish opinion, last asked about the death penalty in 2000. At the time, 67 percent of Jews surveyed favored the death penalty for convicted murderers and 26 percent opposed — numbers comparable to the nationwide figures for that period. More recent data from Gallup found that only 54 percent of Jews believe the death penalty is “morally acceptable,” fewer than Catholics (61), Protestants (66) and Mormons (79). A 2014 survey by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 33 percent of Jews preferred the death penalty for someone convicted of murder, compared to 54 percent of Jews who preferred life in prison.
Democrats are also less likely than Republicans to support the death penalty according to Gallup, and the 2016 Democratic party platform called for its abolition while the Republican platform called the constitutionality of capital punishment “firmly settled.” American Jews favor the Democratic party by large margins.
According to pollsters, overall American support for the death penalty for convicted murderers has been steadily declining for decades, with the Pew Research Center reporting in 2016 that support for capital punishment had fallen to a 40-year low at 49 percent.
