Dueling polls for Louisiana governor election

New governor’s poll
    The polls just keep coming on the Louisiana governor’s race, and each one is always controversial among some candidates and their supporters.

    The latest poll comes from Triumph Campaigns, located in Mississippi, and was first published by our news partner, Bayoubuzz.com.
    The survey polled only the governor’s race only and contains interviews by landlines only with 2,285 persons and has a margin of error of 2.1%.
    If the election were held today, here is what Triumph says the results would be:
    U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R) – 31%.
    State Rep. John Bel Edwards (D) – 30%. 
    Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle (R) –  14%.
    Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne (R) – 13%.
    Undecided – 11%.
    The results of the Triumph poll differs greatly from a poll conducted in late July by Verne Kennedy of Market Research Insight (MRI)  
    MRI’s poll had a stunning result. It showed Angelle with 24%, Vitter with 22%, Edwards with 20%, and Dardenne with 13%.  Undecided was 20%.
    But when Kennedy, who has polled in Louisiana  for decades, factored in the black vote according to historical patterns, the results were Edwards 34%, Angelle 22%, Vitter 22%, and Dardenne 12%.
    So, fear not, poll watchers and supporters of candidates. If you don’t like a particular poll, rest assured there will be more to come as the race moves towards the October 24 primary.

  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

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?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

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.
