Vitter gets high GOP favorables but Louisiana about 1/3 voters still not familiar

If favorability vs. unfavorability scores of the candidate for Louisiana governor were the determinative factor, how would the candidates for Louisiana governor rate?

 According to the recent survey from the Louisiana State University’s Public Policy Research Lab (PPRL), Vitter’s favorability among all voters are +15, Dardenne +21, Angelle +13 and Jon Bel Edwards +5.

Among Republicans, Vitter’s favorables among Republicans are 62 and 49 among Independent voters.  Dardenne scores 37 favor and 30, Angelle hits 25 and 18, respectively.

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.
