Why is it* believed that judges are more apt to interpret the Constitution correctly then regular citizenry?

I understand that judges are supposed to be "un-biased" but usually that is the exact opposite(look at the supreme court nominees) - in the end, lawyers(and then judges) are only schooled in how to turn their political ideology into law.

I'm not sure what you mean? Judges don't legislate, they interpret. That said, no one is totally without some bias--even a supreme court justice.

Education? Experience?

Who says? Where'd that come from?

and how they interpret the law turns into how it is carried out so they can have a huge impact.

They don't interpret.

They try to rewrite.
