Would spreading awareness about the 140+ innocent people exonerated from death row change public opinion?

Gallup polls consistently released say the vast majority of americans support the death penalty. How many of them even realize that so many people were there and it wasnt them who did it? If Americans still support it even if they aware of this, them crazy Could any sane person still support the death penalty... show more Gallup polls consistently released say the vast majority of americans support the death penalty.

Could any sane person still support the death penalty when the number of death row inmates exonerated after they found out they got the wrong person keeps growing. Had the evidence been delayed any longer, those people wouldnt been executed wit ur tax dollars. All of them were thought to be guilty without any doubt. It takes a lot of certainty and a lot of money to sentence someone to death and they still make so many mistakes!

Why not replace it with life in prison without parole. At least if they got the wrong person, he could be released from prison but cant be released from the grave.
