An overwhelming majority of the citizens in most countries around the world still think genocide is a really bad way of solving a nation's problems, according to a new poll.
The strong distaste for mass murder fell two points to 91% disapproval worldwide, a new Gallup Poll found.

More than half of survey respondents said they would be less inclined to fully support a dictator who believed genocide to be a useful tactic in a government's role in conflict resolution.
Full Results of the Poll:
-54% say genocide is extremely fucked-up
-37% say genocide is mostly fucked-up

Margin of error: +/-6%
