The USC Dornsife/ LA Times survey asked 1500 voters about several options for complying with a court order to reduce prison overcrowding. Dan Schnur with the University says nearly 80 percent favor early parole for medically incapacitated inmates. He says there's also significant bi-partisan support for Governor Jerry Brown's plan to shift some low-level offenders from state prisons to county jails:
Schnur: "There is overwhelming support for the Governor's proposal. It received almost 80 percent support from our entire electorate, 81 percent from Democrats and 74 percent from Republicans."
