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.
