Law Profs: Obama 72%, Romney 19%

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!

Actually 1 in 5 is about twice what I would have guessed, so I feel pretty good about it. --TS
