Nebraska voters resoundingly rejecting its legislature's abolition of state's death penalty
Though the votes are not all in, this official Nebraska election page has enough results and those results are lopsided enough that I feel comfortable concluding that Nebraskans have decided to preserve its death penalty. The votes now in show 60% of voters deciding to repeal the legislation that abolished the death penalty in the state. Together with the similarly strong pro-death penalty vote in Oklahoma, it is certainly clear that folks in the heartland are not eager to turn away from the ultimate punishment.

At least some polling is accurate.
These results are very close to death penalty polling results in Nebraska.
