Governor Bobby Jindal is back in the popular poll saddle again. So, is he the "come-back kid"?
According to the new SMOR Poll, a majority of “likely voters” (around 60%) now look unfavorably upon Mary Landrieu’s job performance. Her lead over Bill Cassidy is only 1 percentage point (36%-35%). At the same time, Col. Maness, who is at around 7% in the poll, is releasing gator TV ads; a couple of days ago, Sarah Palin announced that she’s endorsing Maness. Things are also stirring up in the fifth congressional district: Vance McAllister, the kissing Congressman, now seems to have changed his mind and is open to running in the reelection.
Just when you thought the news coming from this administration couldn’t possibly get any more dysfunctional…it does.
While much of the attention as of late has been on the popularity or lack of popularity of US Senator Mary Landrieu who is in the race of her life for a fourth term as US Senator, another Landrieu is in the polling news--her brother, New Orleans mayor, Mitch Landrieu.
In the Southern Media and Opinion Research poll today, Landrieu and Republican US Senator David Vitter lead the pack for the governor's spot, election fall of 2015.
Below is the spring poll by SMOR that indicate Bobby Jindal's poll numbers are improving after taking a severe dive. Also, US Senator David Vitter and New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu (D) lead the gubernatorial pack, although Vitter maintains a sizeable lead in a faceoff with Landrieu.
