RE: Observation on Jews, Civil Liberties, and PoliticsEugene--Although probably most refrained from responding to Bernstein's post given the sense of the use of this list, I am troubled by your timing. If it is off topic when Prof. Bernstein posts, then say so, instead of waiting until someone respectfully refutes him.

Folks: Public attitudes towards constitutional law are indeed at least somewhat on-topic for this list. Still, I wonder whether there's a particular risk that slipping from constitutional law, where we are all experts, into the study of public opinion -- where I suspect that most of us don't have a tremendous amount of academic expertise -- might yield a bit more gut feel speculation than normal. I don't mean to be a bother about this, but I just wanted to flag the danger so that people keep it in mind.
