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.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

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.
