Desperate Politics? Nungesser, Dardenne Debate Louisiana Poll Results
Written by 

Which candidate for Lt. Governor is desperate, if either?

After sending out poll information from blogger-poll survey, “ Enterprise survey”,

that reports the race for Lt. Governor is at a virtual tie at 26 – 24 with a margin of error of +/- 3.5%.,  the Nungesser campaign responded with the following email statement “These numbers are proof that the Nungesser media campaign is starting to have an impact with voters who are responding to Billy’s proven record of results and positive vision for Louisiana’s future.

“Just 10-months ago Dardenne won the Special Election for Lt. Governor with 56% of the vote, but since then has seen a 30-point drop in his ballot strength according to these numbers,” said Nungesser consultant Kent Gates. “Billy Nungesser is in a strong position to win this race since incumbents generally don’t pick –up votes in the closing weeks of the campaign which is why Dardenne has launched a desperate (bold emphasis by Bayoubuzz), negative attack ad that seeks to exploit the devastating impact Katrina and Rita had on Louisianans and small businesses for personal political gain.”

Jay Dardenne launched his first attack video against Billy Nungesser on June 20, 2011, and has not aired one commercial talking about his record. By comparison, Nungesser has aired three TV ads with two featuring him sharing with voters his vision for Louisiana.”

After receiving the Nungesser email, Bayoubuzz asked the Dardenne to respond, which is below:

“The Nungesser spin machine can offer whatever perspective they choose. The reality is that Billy Nungesser is not running for Lt. Governor, but against Jay Dardenne using millions of his own money that he made off BP and by not paying taxes to wage a desperate (bold emphasis bhy Bayoubuzz) negative campaign.”  

“Our extensive polling clearly contradicts these numbers and shows that when voters are introduced to both candidates, Jay Dardenne will once again win on Election Day.”  Jason Hebert, Spokesman for the Jay Dardenne Campaign

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.
