With roughly five months left to go into the Louisiana US Senate race, Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy and the Louisiana Republican Party are in the catbird seat.

A poll released today by Bernie Pinsonat of SMOR (Southern Media and Opinion Research) shows that Kennedy, a Republican, has a substantial lead over his current opposition, with the treasurer receiving almost ⅓ of the vote, to date.
Here are the results:

CHARLES BOUSTANY...................10                                                                 

FOSTER CAMPBELL ...................... 9.2
                                                                     

CAROLINE FAYARD...................... 4.0
                                                                     

JOHN FLEMING .............................. 5.2
                                                                     

TROY HEBERT ................................ 1.8
                                                                   

 JOHN KENNEDY........................... 32.0
                                                                     

ROB MANESS .................................. 4.2
                                                                     

ERIC SKRMETTA............................ 1.2
                                                                     

(UNDEC/DNK/WS) ........................ 32.4

 

In a Kennedy campaign letter announcing the poll results, Kennedy said, “I have some great news. A brand new independent poll was released today and the results are fantastic.”

In the email, was a link to a contribution request page.

The closest Democrats to Kennedy was Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell with 9.2 percent followed by attorney Carolyn Fayard with only 4% of the vote. 

According to the poll, 
 This statewide poll was developed and conducted by Southern Media & Opinion Research, Inc., and paid for by conservative Republican businessman Lane Grigsby of Baton Rouge

        Interviews for this statewide poll were completed by telephone with 500 likely Louisiana voters from Thursday, May 19, through Monday, May 23, 2016.

        The overall margin of error for the statewide statistics obtained from the survey data is not greater than plus or minus 4.4 percentage points at the 95% level of confidence. In other words, there is a 95% certainty that the statistics presented from the results obtained on this survey of 500 likely voters statewide will not be more than 4.4 percentage points above or below the figure that would be obtained if all of the likely voters in the state would have been
Interviewed.

Here is the poll results:

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
