Early voting, strong Democratic, Black turnout for Jon Bel Edwards vs. David Vitter
Written by 

couvillon blabIf early voting is any indication as to what might happen on election day, Saturday Nov. 21, now less than one week away, Jon Bel Edwards might have a good head start.

John Convillon of JMC Analytics, who weeks ago determine that Edwards had a twenty-point lead after the primary has concluded the early voting analysis with a post on his blog. (Read his blog post for today)

In short, Convillion has determined that the interest in the election appears to be much higher with consistently higher turnout, 16% higher than in the primary, more Democratic with 68-30% white-black ratio opposed to 71-27% ratio. 

Convillon also reports that roughly 1/5 of the voters have cast its vote with early voting.

Yesterday, Verne Kennedy of MRI issued its updated daily tracking report which found that Edwards was leading Vitter by 15 points if there would be 26% blacks vote but by only 10% with only 20% of black votes.

The JMC early polling indicates a 30%-68%  black-white ratio which would suggest a current advantage for Edwards at roughly 20%, consistent with JMC’s earlier. Poll

Bayoubuzz will host a LIVE online video DISCUSSION with Mr. Convillon of JMC analytics, tomorrow Monday November 16 at 2:00 PM.  You are invited to watch and to ask questions and comment.  It will also be broadcasted on

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.
