Based on the law and what was presented at this trial, do you believe Zimmerman is guilty of one of the 2 charges, or not guilty?

Why a "public" poll?

Guilty on what...M2 or manslaughter?

What about "hung jury"?

Any bets on the people who will not participate in this poll?

Hint: They aren't shy about their opinions until they are asked to take a stand.

It's a carp poll. You didn't include all the options, you're just looking for a hate list.

I'm not asking what you think the jury will render, I'm asking what you would vote if you were on the jury.

Again, guilty of what?

I can't believe I have to explain this...

Guilty of not being guilty of being guilty of not being guilt of being guilty.

Or maybe the other way around...

Sorry. Then I voted correctly.

Not Guilty.

The judge laid it out... If you have reasonable doubt about the self defense claim, then it's not guilty.

And one which I'm sure you will not vote in, because that would require you to put your mjoney where your mouth is...

Again, guilty of what? There are 2 options on the table. Or didn't you notice?

Yes, there are two options on the table:

Not guilty
&
Guilty (of either count)

Either?

You either find him guilty of one of them, or not guilty of either... The self defense claim is universal.

Well, don't you think it's important to know if people would vote guilty on M2 or guilty on manslaughter?
