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.

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.
