fayard foster campbell 2On Monday, Bayoubuzz published poll results and an article by Lou Gehrig Burnett listed three recent independent polls of the Louisiana US Senate race. Below is further details by Burnett regarding the election and  relevant polls:

Averaging the polls
    These three polls are independent polls, which means that no political campaigns were involved.  The results are not that far apart in all three.

    Let’s average out the three polls among the leading candidates:
    John Kennedy (R) – 20.3%.
    Charles Boustany (R) – 15%.
    Foster Campbell (D) – 15%.
    Caroline Fayard (D) – 11.3%.
    John Fleming (R) – 9%.
    In looking at the average, it appears that Kennedy will definitely be in the runoff.  The race is between Boustany and Campbell for the other runoff spot.
    Interestingly, if Fayard was not in the race, Campbell would have about 26% of the vote and would be leading the pack.
    Should Campbell make the runoff, the polls show that he has an uphill battle to win the seat.
The presidential race
    The three polls also surveyed the president’s race  in Louisiana.   Not surprisingly, Republican Donald Trump is poised the capture the state’s eight electoral voters.
    SMOR found Trump leading Democrat Hillary Clinton 50-25%, a 15-point margin.  UNO had Trump ahead of Clinton 49-35%, a 14-point margin.
    But MRI came up with a different result.  It showed the gap between Trump and Clinton has closed, giving Trump only a 43-36% lead.  In a September poll, MRI had Trump ahead, 52-35%.
Job performance
    The SMOR poll asked respondents to rate five elected officials on job performance.  Here are the results:
    State Treasurer John Kennedy (R) – 65%.
    Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) – 60%.
    Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) – 50%.
    U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy (R) – 45%.
    President Barack Obama (D) – 43%.
    The UNO poll also asked respondents for a job performance rating on Gov. Edwards.  It came in at 56%.

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.
