French Support For Death Penalty Surges To Over Half of the Population

French public support for the reintroduction of the death penalty has surged in 2020, according to a poll that stated 55 per cent of French residents want to see capital punishment make a return.

The figures come from the annual Ipsos/Sopra Steria survey for the Jean Jaurès Foundation and the Institut Montaigne, entitled “French Fractures” and shows a massive surge in support for capital punishment across the political spectrum in 2020.

The highest rate of support for the death penalty comes from supporters of the populist National Rally (RN), led by former presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, with 85 per cent of members in support, compared to 82 per cent in 2019.
