Time Poll.
CNN article.

Other polls reflect the same outcome.

I stand corrected. I have the same level of respect for all political commentary (polls and articles) from all mainstream media outlets.

I like what Joel Skousen had to say...

"The untold story emerging from the Super Tuesday primaries is not that McCain has the Republican nomination almost wrapped up, or that the Democrats are evenly split in their support for Obama and Clinton. The real story is that the manipulation of the election process has become so obvious to the thinking portion of each party that a latent rebellion is brewing. More and more people are cynical and angry over media bias, carefully timed big name endorsements that sway ignorant voters, and back room party deals (yet to come) that are specifically aimed at thwarting the ever-growing dissatisfaction of voters with the hollow promises of change. Those that spend a considerable amount of time pondering the issues and candidate positions (both real and feigned) are in the minority of each party. But, they are at least twice as active as passive and manipulated voters---and they don't like what they see ahead. Is this growing rebellion enough to stop the establishment process of limiting our choice to Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum? Probably not, at least not yet, but dissatisfaction levels are growing so much that if the establishment forces John McCain and Hillary Clinton upon the nation, an independent challenge is probable."

The politicos are the problem, not lawyers.

Without lawyers we wouldn't have made as much progress as we've had to date:

The funniest things about people who trash attorneys 24/7: The first time they have their ass in a jam they call one up for help.

I see a fundamental flaw in our whole political process.

It is great for lawyers to stick to lawyering, that is, prosecuting and defending persons accused of civil or criminal infractions.

The problem is when big-moneyed lawyers are the lobbyists or working for the lobbyists and indeed writing the statutes that the legislator proposes as a bill. Multiple conflicts of interest here.

Lawmakers are funded by the same people that the lobbyists and lawyers are funded by. And lawyers are prosecuting and defending cases based on the laws that they wrote and got passed.

On top of all that, many of the representatives and senators are practicing attorneys.

The separation of powers foundational idea of our republic was very wise in intending that lawyers confine themselves to the judicial branch of government.
