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:
    *Edwards leads Vitter 51-35%. Undecided 13%.


    *When undecideds were asked who they were leaning to, the results were Edwards 54% and Vitter 38%.
    *For Lt. Governor – Billy Nungesser (R) 45%, Kip Holden (D) 34% and 21% undecided.
    *For Attorney General – Jeff Landry (R) 46%, Buddy Caldwell 25%, and 29% undecided.
    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:
    *Edwards leads Vitter 56-34% with 10% undecided.
    *Nearly one-third of conservatives say they are going to vote for Edwards.
    *One-fourth of Republicans say they are going to vote for the Democratic candidate Edwards.
    *Nearly one-half of the voters who cast a ballot for Scott Angelle or Jay Dardenne plan on voting for Edwards.
    *Gov. Bobby Jindal has a 70% disapproval rating.
    *Three-fourths of voters who strongly disapprove of Bobby Jindal support Edwards in the runoff.
    *Two-thirds of likely voters say Louisiana is headed in the wrong direction.
    *Nearly one-half of respondents report that the state’s economy has worsened over the past year.
    *Whites support Vitter 47-42% with 11% undecided.
    *Blacks support Edward 90-5% with 5%  undecided.
    *Females support Edwards 57-31% with 12% undecided.
    *Males support Edwards 56-36% with 8% undecided.
    *Democrats support Edwards 92-5% with 3% undecided.
    *Republicans support Vitter 59-27% with 14% undecided.
    *Independents support Edwards 54-38% with 9% undecided. 
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.
