Over at the VC, Ilya Somin has a post linking to the latest version of his paper on post-Kelo eminent domain reform. The post also discusses the public's lack of knowledge about eminent domain issues:
In the SCG's 2007 Saint Index survey, conducted last August, only 21% of Americans could correctly answer a question about whether or not their states had enacted post-Kelo eminent domain reform, and only 13% could both correctly answer that question and a follow-up question about whether or not their state's reform law was likely to be effective in curbing economic development takings. Public ignorance about post-Kelo reform - like opposition to Kelo itself - cuts across racial, ethnic, gender, ideological, and partisan lines.
