As of this morning, some 500 potential jurors will be grilled about their positions on race, guns, and the media as prosecutors and George Zimmerman’s defense attorneys work to whittle the mass of jurors down to the six and four alternates who could decide Zimmerman’s fate.

But it’s the demographic look of the six jurors and four alternates that ultimately may be more important than their views, legal experts say.

If the Zimmerman legal team can pack the Seminole County, Fla., jury with white, conservative, pro-conviction jurors, they could beat the 2nd degree murder charge, says Jose Baez, who successfully defended Casey Anthony in 2011.

The defense’s case hinges on convincing a jury that the 17-year-old black Florida teenager attacked the white, Hispanic former neighborhood watch captain so viciously, he feared for his life, and used deadly force to defend himself.

Lead Zimmerman defense attorney Mark O’Mara, despite advising his client to forego a pre-trial immunity “Stand Your Ground” hearing, has repeated numerous times that this is “not about civil rights but is a self-defense case.”
