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:

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
