The Civitas Institutes latest poll was bad news for North Carolina’s two most prominent trial lawyers-politicians. Right here in his home state John Edwards finds himself in a dead head with Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton 22%
John Edwards 24%
Barach Obama 22%
In politics, when the folks at home – who know you best – start voting for someone else it’s time to find a new occupation.
The Republicans’ most prominent trial lawyer, Salisbury Attorney Bill Graham, got some teeth gnashing news too. Graham spent a million dollars on issue ads last year to get a head start in his race for Governor. According to the Civitas Poll, he needs to spend around five million more.
Bill Graham 10%
Patrick Ballantine 15%
Bob Orr 8%
Fred Smith 3%
Here’s an idea for Graham: Think of all the things you can do with five million dollars. You can buy a villa in the south of France and live on the Riviera for the next eight years – instead of in a cold, damp Victorian ‘Gingerbread House’ on Blount Street.
