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.
