Louisiana Poll: Jindal Gets Highest Favorables, But Mixed Results
Written by 
jindal-jeffBased upon a just-released poll by recent Southern Media and Opinion Research (SMOR), Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has the most favorable numbers of the major statewide elected officials, yet, as he enters his second term, he faces a frustrated state giving him a mixed report card for his past four years.

While Jindal beats David Vitter, John Kennedy, Mary Landrieu, Jay Dardenne (and Barack Obama who is included) in favorable scores, over 66% of those answering the poll said conditions were the same or getting worse and over 43% gave the Governor a C, D or F.

The poll said that 48.3% said the state was heading in the right direction while 35.1 said the wrong direction.  Also, 31% of the respondents said that conditions are getting better but 18.7 said the conditions in the state were getting worse and 48.6 felt the conditions were about the same

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.
