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.

Governor Jay Dardenne and State Sen. John Bel Edwards.   Vitter also has room for growth as 28 percent remain unfamiliar with him although he is serving his second term as US Senator.
