THe numbers are meaningless. Some states don't have a death penalty, so
the only ones they have are 'left-overs' from previous convictions, who
will never be executed. Others are just accumulating them, since they
stopped executing them long ago. Some, like Texas, are pretty
aggressive about actually executing them, while other either don't, or
do so at a slower rate.

Lack of customers or doubling up on cell occupancy?
I can solve the prison crowding problem easily. First, all those who
are taking up cells waiting for execution, execute! All those who are
in for life with no parole, execute. All those who are in for a third
violent felony, execute. Lots of room!
Numbers, please. Maybe Texas is special? My impression, based on some
study of who actually ends up in jail, is that you might free up about
10% of the spaces. Most cons are in for white collar crime, drug crime,
petty theft, robbery, etc, and a quite a few because of inability to pay
fines, or for parole violations (such as forgetting to abstain from
alcohol). Short to medium sentences. Also, an astonishing number are in
jail awaiting trial.
