Jury nullification as a tactic

There are some that think jury nullification can be an effective tactic to prevent effective enforcement of local laws (e.g. car campers, once it is passed). Having watched the Florida trial of Zimmerman, and without passing judgment, I like the six member jury system, unless it is a capital (death penalty) case. Jury nullification would be less possible, if there are six fewer jurors who can nullify, with a single vote. It would also reduce our obligation to be part of jury pools by about half.
I wonder how many other Californians think this is a good idea?
