fleming ad 3On Monday, JMC Analytics and Polling sent out, by email, a poll which it also published on its own site that reflected some pretty surprising, if not, shocking news.

Skyrocketing to the top of the polls were Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell (D), and Congressman Charles Boustany (R).  Snuggled in that top group was Congressman Fleming, one point behind the two, thus, in a statistical tie as a leader for the US Senate race.

The Fleming campaign, on the same date, posted on its own campaign site, “Boustany and Campbell hold steady at 15%, Fleming doubles support to 14%, and Kennedy plummets to 11%".  


 At the top of the Fleming web page which article is under the “News” section of the site, is the graphic at the top of this article.

Other than the above reference in a green box at the upper right of this image on its website, at no other location in the text of the article, did the Fleming campaign reveal that it paid for the JMC poll. 

Nor does that green box image state for what the Fleming paid.  The picture?  It did not state the poll was paid for the Fleming campaign.  Nor does the article reveal who wrote it.

Interesting, the confusion as to who paid for the poll has caused a little confusion in the political industry bringing "alleged" enemies together, to discuss.

A short twitter conversation started between David Duke, a candidate and Tyler Bridges, the Advocate writer, who has written two books about Duke about the very issue.  That tweeting occurred today, which follows:

The big news item from the poll, other than the fact that Fleming paid for it, is the story line that John Kennedy, who has been the leader in all of the polls to date, including the last Pinsonat poll, is no longer at the top of the candidate heap.

SMOR had revealed Kennedy at a dramatic 17% drop since its last poll in May 2016.  However, in a recent interview, Pinsonat also noted that Kennedy had not yet begun his TV advertising, which he stated on the day the SMOR poll was released.

The JMC Consulting poll supports the SMOR poll regarding the Kennedy slippage, but, claims that Campbell is tied with Boustany.  Pinsonat’s poll showed a two points differential with Kennedy at 17 and Boustany at 15, in his most recent SMOR poll.

Another major comparison is the reversal of Campbell and his Democrat counterpart, Caroline Fayard.  In the Pinsonat poll, Fayard led Campbell.

Here were JMC’s overall findings from its website:

JMC Analytics and Polling was recently commissioned to do a poll in Louisiana both for the Presidential and the (24 candidate) U.S. Senate race. Among its findings:

  1. For the U.S. Senate race, five candidates now have a path to the runoff,
  2. While Democratic Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell and Republican Congressman Charles Boustany lead the field, Republican Congressman John Fleming has seen his support nearly double relative to a similar poll that was conducted in July, and Democratic attorney Caroline Fayard has seen her support increase as well,
  3. Republican Treasurer John Kennedy has seen a substantial decline in his poll numbers, and
  4. Donald Trump has a 10 point lead in Louisiana.

    Here are the findings from the Pinsonat poll:

State Treasurer John Kennedy (R) – 16.9%.
    U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany (R) --. 15.2%.
    Attorney Caroline Fayard (D) – 11.4%.
    PSC Foster Campbell (D) – 9.2%.
    U.S. Rep. John Fleming (R) – 8.3%.
    Retired Lt. Col. Rob Maness (R) – 3.3%.
    David Duke (R) – 3.1%.

Here are the results from the Fleming poll:

Boustany 15%,

Campbell 15%,

Fleming 14%,

Fayard 12%,

Kennedy 11% 

Maness 4%

Duke 3%

Tomorrow at 9AM, Bayoubuzz will engage in a FB Live interview with John Couvillon of JMC Analytics.  Come join us and watch.

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.
