CNN poll: Cassidy leads Landrieu by 3, Maness ties Democrat 48-48
Written by 

manessIn short contrast to a recent Fox News poll,  according to a CNN/ORC INTERNATIONAL poll, US Senator Mary Landrieu is leading in a three-person race although based upon the margin of error, the race for the jungle primary is still a toss up.

 In the Fox News poll earlier this month, Cassidy led Landrieu by 13 points, 51-38 in a two-person contest.  The CNN poll shows the differential to be only 3 percent.

(see CNN poll)

The poll considered likely voters and another one registered analyzed registered voters.

A poll of likely voters normally favors the republicans and a poll of registered voters usually favors Democrats.

The polls indicate an significant “anyone but Mary Landrieu” sentiment evidenced by the fact that Rob Maness only received 9 percent in a three-person race, however, he ties Landrieu in a head to head contest.

Also, the key to a Landrieu victory would be to convert the registered voters inclined to vote for her to “likely voters”

In the poll of likely voters, Landrieu leads Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy 43-40 with Rob Maness, the Tea Party favorite collecting 9 percent.

In the survey of registered voters, Landrieu tops Cassidy 45-35 and Maness registered 8 percent.

If no candidate receives over 50 percent of the vote tallied during the November 4 “jungle primary”, there will be a December runoff between the two top candidates.

Cassidy leads Landrieu in that latter scenario—should a runoff be necessary:

2. If that run-off election for U.S. Senate were held today and the candidates were Mary Landrieu,

the Democrat, and Bill Cassidy, the Republican, who would you be more likely to vote for? (IF

UNSURE:) As of today, who do you lean more toward? (RANDOM ORDER)


Landrieu 47

Cassidy 50

Uncertain 3

Sept. 22-25, 2014 47% 50% 3%


Landrieu 51 %

Cassidy  45%

Uncertain 4%

Interesting, should a runoff be between Rob Maness and Mary Landrieu, for likely voters, according to the poll, the two candidates would tie 48-48.  Yet, in a one-to-one contest among registered voters, Landrieu would receive 53% to Maness 45% with 2% uncertain.

Sept. 22-25, 2014 51% 45% 4%

In Louisiana, interviews with 1,013 adult Americans conducted by telephone by ORC International on September 22-25, 2014. The margin of sampling error for results based on the total sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points. The Louisiana sample also includes 866 interviews among registered voters (plus or minus 3.5 percentage points) and 610 interviews among likely voters (plus or minus 4 percentage points). In Louisiana, 710 interviews were conducted among landline respondents and 303 interviews among cell phone respondents.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
