Jindal, Louisiana legislature, Vitter, Landrieu: SMOR poll winners and losers
Written by 

winners-losersThe Louisiana and much of the U.S. political community is abuzz over the recent poll conducted by Buster McKenzie and Bernie Pinsonat of SMOR.



 There are some winners--most of the state's high elected officials.  Then, there is a loser--Governor Bobby Jindal.  The Louisiana governor's poll ratings have dropped to the floor the past year to the extent that he polls lower than President Barack Obama, a very unpopular political figure in the  reddest of Republican red states, Louisiana.

After the poll’s announcement, Bayoubuzz’s publisher Stephen Sabludowsky and political analyst discussed the meaning of the poll numbers, the impact of them in relationship to the upcoming legislative session and what the poll might impact Jindal’s influence during the session beginning April 8, 2013. The two also discussed other political issues such as the upcoming election of U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu.

Also, today, radio talk show host Jim Engster interviewed Pinsonat on the WRKF morning show.  The pair discussed the impact of the poll upon Jindal, the Louisiana legislature, the U.S. Senate race, Mary Landrieu, Mitch Landrieu, the Louisiana economy David Vitter, the upcoming gubernatorial election and much more.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
