Pinsonat Says Mary Landrieu Is in Serious Trouble in US Senate Race
Written by 

landrieu-tea-partyA new statewide telephone survey of likely Louisiana Voters finds Cassidy, a U.S. Congressman, with 44% support to Landrieu’s 40%. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate in the race, while 11% were undecided.  The above was Rasmussen’s headline for the announcement of results from his recent statewide survey Louisiana Voters.

 

These numbers are very similar to SMOR’s survey back in December. A couple of days ago a new report by Congressional Quarterly/ Roll Call, shows that Landrieu voted with President Obama 97% of the time in 2013. Gee, I wonder why Landrieu is stuck at 40% and now losing to Congressman Bill Cassidy.

Coincidentally, Senator Landrieu’s voter support is about the same support President Obama receives from Louisiana voters. Polling data on Louisiana voters confirm seventy percent of white voters have opposed most (probably all) of President Obama’s major initiatives. The so called government shutdown, a majority of whites in Louisiana blamed President Obama not republicans in congress. Yep – we are a red state!

In all recent statewide election this seventy percent of white Louisiana voters have rejected democratic candidates and elected republicans. I guess Senator Landrieu does not consider the wishes of this seventy percent as important as the wishes of national democrats and President Obama. She has certainly voted against their wishes vote after vote – time and time again! Voting with President Obama 97% of the time against the wishes of 60% of Louisiana voters the year before your reelection is politically dumb.  

You make it exceedingly difficult to get re-elected when voting with the Democratic Party and President Obama is a bigger priority than voting with the 50 plus % you need to get reelected.  For the last year when Senator Landrieu’s re-election outlook was discussed, most went back in time and dismissed Landrieu’s bleak outlook as a normal occurrence. She always looks weak, but seems to find a way to win. To the contrary and actually Senator Landrieu’s last two re-elections, she had a double digit lead going into the last 30 days. Landrieu was up by at least 14% against Kennedy 26 days out.

Had the national Republican Party not pulled the plug on Kennedy a month out would things have been different?  The talk of Landrieu’s hidden strength is now fading away: the realization of her anemic poll numbers and shock of how often she votes with President Obama and the democrats is giving way too - she is in serious trouble.

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.

jbeWith equal parts pugnaciousness and disingenuousness, Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards’ highly-politicized 2017 State of the State speech laid out a truly flawed vision for Louisiana going forward.
