Poll: Floridians support George Zimmerman more than the Marlins or Rays
NBC Sports ^ | 4/24/12 | Rick Chandler

Posted on 04/25/2012 3:14:08 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Well, this is odd: In a recent poll, 26 percent of Florida residents say that George Zimmerman is innocent of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Know that for a fact, do you folks? Seems to me the “not sure” box is just begging to be checked on that survey. But this is odder still: that’s 10 percent more Florida residents than support the Tampa Bay Rays. And even fewer support the Miami Marlins.

Ozzie Guillen, the outspoken manager of the Marlins, isn’t very popular either. Just 7 percent of those responding had a favorable opinion of the skipper, while 39 percent said his recent comments about Fidel Castro were inappropriate.

A total of 700 Florida voters were surveyed by Public Policy Polling for the data that has a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percent.

George’s numbers should be higher. I am convinced he is innocent.

I think in the end....he will be seen as neither innocent or guilty....just a guy at the wrong place, wrong time.

Innocent but convicted by factions that PC dictates must be appeased.

*snort*

Tell it to your bosses who altered Zimmerman’s 911 call in an attempt to smear him as a racist, crazed killer.

MLB.com subscribers living in FL are blacked out from Rays and Marlins games. That includes away games. I cannot for instance watch the Marlins play the Mets in NY. It used to bother me, but if those teams wish to destroy their fan base, that is up to them.

The NBC Sports poll is remarkably high considering the way the story was reported by NBC News and the rest of the MSM!

When George is finally “officially” found not guilty I hope he lawyers up and sues into bankruptcy every lying bastard who publicly accused him of murder.

Those do look like razor or knife cuts, don’t they?

You’re right. The straight line is just where his head was shaven to treat the injury. A little early in the AM here.

Who shaved his head within 3 minutes of the incident? :-)

The apparent straight line is most likely a trick of the lighting.

Or maybe one of the wounds is from the edge of the sidewalk?

You're right. Even if that area was shaven it wasn't where the injury was anyway. I'm going back to bed. :)

“This is a tremendous part of the Zimmerman defense,” lawyer Stuart Slotnick told The Post. “The early story we heard was that, at one point, Trayvon was on top of him banging his head into the sidewalk. It takes a tremendous amount of force to cut someone’s head and scalp, and this corroborates what [Zimmerman] was saying.”

Crump has already dismissed them as minor cuts...

It’s a great thing that the iPhone records the time and GPS location of photos. We know when and where the photo was taken.

That Post caption might come in handy for the defense at some point.

I think this shows people don't care about the Zimmerman - Martin case which is actually a good thing. Using it as a wedge issue is going nowhere. The Blacks who will show up to vote are already voting for Obama and this will probably add few if any new “converts.”

The opinions of uninformed Florida sports fans are phenomenally irrelevant. The only thing that matters is what the members of a jury panel think after actually seeing and hearing the evidence - perhaps even the photo of Zimmerman’s bleeding head and an unedited recording of the 911 call. When that happens, we will know whether there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman is lying about his version of events and actually murdered the cute 12 y/o kid who just wanted to eat his skittles - at night, in the rain, in a neighborhood that was not his own.

Well yes. Anyone using KNOWN evidence and not emotions, can easily see that Zimmerman is not guilty of 2nd degree murder.

That’s not enough. You must protrate yourself and acknowledge the need for re-education.

This picture has been BARELY MENTIONED by the extreme left wing Miami media. Miami, you remember, is the home of George Zimmerman’s attacker, St. Skittles.

Not surprised. It’s really disgusting how the liberal-left controls the news.
