Law Profs back President Obama over Mitt Romney 72% to 19%, according to Brian Leiter's poll.
Update #1: Brian Leiter closed the poll with 420 votes cast and a final tally of Obama 69%, Romney 22%. See The Law Professors Have Spoken:
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!
Update #2: Ann Althouse (Wisconsin) has followed up with her own poll: the vote of her readers is currently Romney 88%, Obama 3% (the President is losing to Libertarian Gary Johnson (7%)).
