Even in deep red Texas, the overwhelming majority of individuals on both the left and the right oppose sending nonviolent drug offenders to prison, according to a new poll by two conservative policy groups. Some 79 percent support sending drug offenders “who are not traffickers” to probation rather than prison. Broken down by party affiliation, even greater percentages — 81 percent for Republicans and 89 percent for Democrats — supported this reform.
