A new poll finds that majority of Florida voters support the state's "Stand Your Ground" law.

The law has been heavily debated in the wake of the death of Trayvon Martin.

The 17-year-old was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer who claimed self defense.

A Quinnipiac University survey of Florida voters finds that 56-percent are in favor of "Stand Your Ground."

The neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Martin.
