Pinsonat: Good Luck Mary Landrieu, Dardenne Under Radar In Louisiana Poll
 

landrieuAlso, while current Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne has the lowest favorable of any statewide elected officials (including Landrieu), according to Pinsonat, Dardenne should not be counted out, nor should his  recent support for Mitt Romney minimize his election prospects. 

These are the pollster’s conclusions as to Bayoubuzz’s recent questions to him arising out of a Southern Media & Organization Research (SMOR) poll financed by conservative Baton Rouge businessman, Lane Grigsby. 

 

The poll focused upon issues being discussed during the legislative session as well as the poll ratings of the state’s statewide elected officials.

Bayoubuzz asked Pinsonat the following questions regarding the findings of that poll.

The questions and Pinsonat’s responses are below:


Jay Dardenne actually had the worse numbers of all of the statewide elected officials.  Recently, he supported Mitt Romney who could have problems winning Louisiana.  Do you think that his backing of Romney could come back and haunt him in the future or do you think it is a minor issue and not much of a factor despite his less than 50% favorable?

Jay Dardenne always fly’s under radar when it comes to his political support or the seeming lack of. Kathleen Blanco proved a Lieutenant governor can become governor. She did it with a big base called Acadiana. Jay can easily duplicate this with his base in and around the Baton Rouge Area. Jay Dardenne’s main competition remains Treasurer John Kennedy, one of these candidates is in the best position to become Louisiana’s next governor. That election is a long way off, but for now they are the strongest candidates for governor.

You have mentioned in the recent past that you felt that Mary Landrieu would have a very time winning re-election.  Yet, her favorable are over 50%.  Do you have a change of mind?  Can Senator Landrieu weather the storm?

Senator Landrieu’s positives are barely decent! Senator Landrieu’s positives are insignificant because she also has very high negatives with white voters. When those nasty attack ads begin pointing out she was the vote that passed national health care – good luck Mary. In our neighbor state of Arkansas, (more moderate than Louisiana) less than ninety minutes after the polls closed Senator Blanche Lincoln called her republican opponent to concede. Senator Blanche Lincoln was a blue dog democrat and considered a moderate (perfect match for Arkansas).  Senator Lincoln was chairman of the powerful Senate Agricultural Committee (huge plus for her), which is very important to Arkansas’s economy. None of this mattered! Senator Lincoln sided with President Barack Obama’s health care reform legislation. The negative attacks were brutal and she was trounced in her reelection bid! I have not talked to one political insider who thinks Senator Landrieu will be reelected. Please do not tell me the insiders were wrong in her previous elections – insiders predicted she would win, including me! Maybe if Barack Obama is not reelected she might have a chance, maybe.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
