This special topic poll sought respondents' views on the O.J. Simpson murder trial verdict and on the treatment of minorities in the criminal justice system. Those queried were asked for their opinions on the verdict in the Simpson case and whether they believed Simpson was guilty or innocent. Additional topics covered a possible police conspiracy to frame Simpson and whether the outcome of the trial would have been different if Simpson were white. Demographic variables include sex and race.
