UNO’s Ed Chervenak talks Louisiana Democrats lack of turnout, election activity
  // Monday, 19 October 2015 16:47 //

chervenak-photoBased upon the survey of pre-election day voter-turnout, thus far, Louisiana Democrats have a long-haul if they are going to prevail this election season.

In a Bayoubuzz interview with Dr. Ed Chervenak of UNO Political Science Dept, early voting does not look good when compared to 2014 mid-term elections.  Any democrat running for office in Louisiana would have to “maximize” their turnout if they want to compete in the state.

Chervenak said based upon the results they have compiled, “we know who is getting out to vote”, the trend appears to be Vitter and Edwards leading.  But, in 2014, Mary Landrieu, who had 100 percent name recognition could only get 45 percent of the vote, which would make it difficult for Jon Bell Edwards with roughly 30 percent name recognition.

 Chevernak said he expects between 40 to 45 percent turnout and he does not know if there is enough time for democrats to mobile the necessary support.    

The UNO professor said that what is important no is determining the likely voters.  People say they will vote but you have to be careful, who actually will turn out.

He also said the interest in the campaign is very low, and in Orleans Parish, it doesn’t even seem like there is a campaign going on.
