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%

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%
