White flight hits Louisiana Democratic Party
Written by 

white-louisianaThe city of Shreveport is not the only one who has a problem with white flight. So does the Louisiana Democratic Party.
Preliminary voting statistics reveal that U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, garnered 78% of the white voters while incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu received only 22%.

Black voters, however, remain loyal to the Democratic Party even though Republicans have been trying to make inroads. Landrieu got 96% of the black votes cast.
Early voters accounted for 18% of the total vote in the runoff election. Statistics indicate that Cassidy won among early voters by a 60-40% margin.
Of the 82% of voters who turned out on election day, Cassidy captured 55% and Landrieu 45%.
Voters apparently were not as enthusiastic about the runoff as they were about the primary election. The voter turnout for the November 4 primary statewide was 51.5%. But only 43.2% of voters went to the polls for the runoff on December 5.
By the numbers, 1,472,044 votes were cast on November 4 compared with 1,273,589 on December 6. That means 198,455 fewer voters cast ballots for the runoff election.
We’ll take a look at additional stats once they are official and released by the Louisiana Secretary of State.

    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.
