Democrats feel the current system works against certain groups and low-income Americans. There is a split on the method of reform. Some wish to change or reduce the current system costs to the person. Others want to abolish cash bail completely. source

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

While many support the choice of the states and the execution of violent criminals, there is a shift in favor of abolishing capital punishment in recent years. This is particularly true for various conservative groups, who view it as murder and share concerns about costs and the number of innocents sent to death row. source

AGAINST Democrats

Since about 2016, Democrats have increasingly opposed the death penalty because it’s morally seen as murder, and new technology has proven various people on death row were unjustly convicted. The party favors improving rehabilitation measures and CSI technology. source

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

While many support the choice of the states and the execution of violent criminals, there is a shift in favor of abolishing capital punishment in recent years. This is particularly true for various conservative groups, who view it as murder and share concerns about costs and the number of innocents sent to death row. source

AGAINST Democrats

Since about 2016, Democrats have increasingly opposed the death penalty because it’s morally seen as murder, and new technology has proven various people on death row were unjustly convicted. The party favors improving rehabilitation measures and CSI technology. source
