Edwards has double-digit lead
    Democrat  John  Bel  Edwards  holds a double-digit  lead over Republican David Vitter in the race for Louisiana governor, according to two new polls.
    A poll release Monday by JMC Analytics showed:

    The respected University of New Orleans Survey Research Center (SRC), which is non-partisan,  conducted a statewide survey of likely voters between Nov. 2-8.  Here are the results of the survey:

Lt. Governor’s race
    SRC also polled the race for Lt. Governor. It found that Republican candidate Billy Nungesser has a comfortable lead over the Democratic candidate Kip Holden, 49-39% with 12% undecided.
    Support for these candidates fall along racial and partisan lines.  Two-thirds of whites favor Nungesser, who is white, with three-quarters of blacks favor Holden, who is black.
    Also, 70% of Republicans said they would vote for Nungesser while 70% of Democrats said they backed Holden. A majority of Independents support Nungesser.
