Statistics: Using the PValue method how to I answer this question.
In October 2009, 65% (0.65) of Americans favored the death penalty for a person convicted of murder.

The headline in the article reporting the survey results stated, "Fewer Americans favor the death penalty." Use a test of significance to support or refute this headline
