Of course, members of Congress are only one election loss away from being either lobbyists or think tanked.

Not far behind: reporters and state legislators

How long before state and federal executive branches join the list of least respected?

2. All of them seem to vote mostly along party lines, which
betrays their role in our Constitution. Still, I don't think I could ever rank Justice Ginsberg poorly.

The list at the link shows judges are around midway. I might argue with how highly police were rated, though.
