SMOR Poll: John Young slight lead over Nungesser, Guillory for Lt. Governor
Written by 

john-youngSMOR has just released a poll on the Lt. Governor's race of 2015 that indicates that if current Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne were to run for Governor, as expected, John Young would have a slight lead over Sen. Elbert Guillory and Plaquemines Parish President, Billy Nungesser: 

 2015 Louisiana Lieutenant Governor’s race

Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne is seriously eyeing a run for Governor in 2015. If he does run for Governor, that would leave his current office open without an incumbent to challenge. Three possible candidates for Lieutenant Governor, all of whom are Republican, were included in the April 2014 poll.

Plaquemines Parish President and former gubernatorial candidate Billy Nungesser is slightly better know among voters than are either State Senator Elbert Guillory or Jefferson Parish President John Young. All three of the possible candidates have unfavorable ratings in the 30s, with those unfavorable ratings coming mainly from Democrats (particularly from black Democrats) and from Democrat-leaning Independents.

John Young leads the three-way trial heat with 32% of the vote, Nungesser is second with 23%, and Guillory is third with 9%. A substantial proportion of voters (36%) are undecided.

Young attracts the highest proportion (36%) of the white vote, Nungesser is second with 21%, and Guillory is third with 10%. One in three (33%) white voters are undecided.

Although 43% of black voters are undecided, Nungesser draws the highest proportion (28%), followed by Young with 20%, and Guillory with 9%.

The high proportion of voters who say they are not familiar with the three possible candidates tested together with a relatively high undecided on the trial heat indicate this race could still take many turns before the election on October 24, 2015.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
