Summary
This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the O.J. Simpson murder trial verdict and its effect on race relations in the United States. Respondents were asked for their opinions regarding the trial's verdict, the guilt or innocence of Simpson, whether justice was served in the case, and the treatment of minorities in the criminal justice system. Those queried were asked to comment on how the trial's verdict had affected race relations in the United States and the respondents' confidence in the justice system. Questions were also posed regarding the composition of the jury, specifically the aptitude of the jury and how the verdict would change if the demographics of the jury were altered. Other topics covered current racism versus ten years ago, race and the police, the role of Detective Mark Furhman in the Simpson case, the existence of a white establishment, and the possibility that Black jurors used Simpson's race as a justification for acquittal. Demographic variables include age, race, sex, education, family income, and social class
