The question was asked whether or not Simpson's wealth played a key role getting a not guilty verdict because he could afford the best in legal defense. Seventy-three percent felt that Simpson would have been convicted had he not been rich. Nineteen percent believed that he still would have been acquitted.
People were also asked "If Simpson had been white, would that have had any bearing on the verdict? Would he have been found guilty?" Forty-one percent said yes, he would have been found guilty. Forty-five percent said no.
People were asked if the jurors performed their duty responsibly, regardless of the verdict. Sixty-two percent said that it was, and 32% said that it was not.
