With about 420 votes cast from our poll earlier in the week, here's how the legal academic vote divides up:
69% support President Obama; 22% support Republican challenger Mitt Romney; and 2% each support Gary Johnson, the Libertarian, and Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate. 4% are not supporting anyone! I'm impressed (or distressed) by the strong showing for the Republican, and surprised by the tepid support for both Johnson and Stein. As further evidence that legal academics lean to the right, do contrast the results when I polled philosophers on the election!
