Answer . They certainly wouldn't admit to it so there is no way of getting proper statistics on this.
There are 435 representatives in the House, compared to 100senators in the Senate. This is the number reached when new seats were added in 1913, andthe number was locked by… the Reapportionment Act of 1929. From 1959to 1963, there were temporarily 437 seats. There are 6 other non-voting delegates. There are 5 elected 2-yeardelegates, one each from Washington DC, Guam, American Samoa, theMarianas, and the US Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico has a non-votingResident Commissioner as a delegate in the House, with a four-yearterm. The delegates have committee seats in the House and havevoting rights there, but cannot vote for a bill's passage on thefloor. --- The reason for the limited number of representatives was to avoid aHouse so large that it would become unwieldy. Congressmen had everyincentive to keep the number low to maintain the political power ofeach member. But the result has been that the size ofconstituencies has increased dramatically. With one exception, the total voting membership of the House ofRepresentatives had been increased after each of the officialcensuses from 1790 to 1910, at the time of the apportionments. Eventhough the apportionment is a Constitutional requirement, it wasnot done following the 1920 census. If it had been done asrequired, even without an increase to the total of 435 seats, 12seats would have been transferred from one state to another,including an increase of three seats for California. During the formation of the US Constitution the subject regardingthe size of the House of Representatives came up. When a maximumcongressional district size of 40,000 was proposed, GeorgeWashington, in one of his few comments regarding the debates,warned that 40,000 was too large and that 30,000 would be a moreappropriate maximum. While the State of New York was debatingwhether or not to ratify the US Constitution, one of the delegates,Melancton Smith, warned that since increasing the number ofRepresentatives would decrease the share of power of each existingRepresentative, they should not be expected to be inclined to doso. He went on to say, "It is, therefore, of the highest importancethat a suitable number of representatives should be established bythe Constitution." The 12th proposed amendment of the Bill of Rights, the only onenever ratified, would have established a maximum representation,and a minimum corresponding size of the House. Under that plan, thelegal minimum number of Representatives in 2010 would have been6189, including at least 12 for Wyoming and at least 746 forCalifornia. The average congressional district size is over 700,000people, and the current population of the largest district is wellover 990,000.
As of 2014, there are 10,000 lawyers who are employed by the USDepartment of Justice. The department was established on July 1,1870.
25 of the 43 presidents, including the current President Obama, were members of the bar and qualified to practice as lawyers. Some of them, such as Jefferson, John Quincy Adam…s and Woodrow Wilson, had a very limited practice. (Obama is known as the 44th President, but only 43 people have been President. Cleveland is counted twice, as both the 22nd and 24 presidents.)
