Triumph's poll, with cross tabs, for Louisiana governor's, Lt. Governor and Insurance Commissioner race
 

angelleYesterday, afternoon, I received an email from a source, informing me of a new poll, showing basically no change in the Louisiana Governor's race with  Democrat Jon Bel Edwards holding a slight lead over Republican David Vitter .  This poll was conducted by Triumph Campaigns and it included the following email to poll subscribers.

 

After receiving the poll, I looked to see if it included cross-tabs, so, readers can determine more poll details including the poll's credibility.  I bring this up because, as in most elections, we have one group supporting a certain candidate claiming its poll is independent and another group saying, no, their poll is really the independent one, therefore the most accurate.  

As I did weeks ago when i last received the poll from Triumph, I asked Mr. Brasell to please forward the cross tabs to me so i could put up the poll.  

Later, I saw that other publications reported on the same poll with their commentaries but without including any cross tabs.

I received the poll this morning and thus, we are asking you to review the poll results (powerpoint presentation) with the cross tabs.

At this time, I am not commenting upon the poll, the consistency, the reliability of it nor comparing it to any other.

I understand that other polls will come out today and hopefully, when they do, they will include, not only the powerpoint presentation, but cross tabs, so we can compare the various polls' accuracies.

We shall see.   Here is the Triumph Poll including the CROSS TABS:

RE: LOUISIANA POLITICAL SURVEY RESULTS

Governor’s Race:

Sorry to sound like a broken record, but overall, the ballot for Governor has not changed much. If the election for Governor were held today, it would be a Vitter (30.6%)/Edwards (31.4%) run‐off. Dardenne (13.2%) and Angelle (14.2%) are running a distant 3rd and 4th. Only 10.6% remain undecided.

However, it does appear the both frontrunners are beginning to solidify key blocks. Edwards is beginning to galvanize the African‐American vote. The previous August survey had him polling 64% among African‐American voters. The current survey has him polling 74%.

Vitter maintains a distant and consistent lead among white voters. He leads all challengers by at least 23 points among whites. Among Republican voters, Vitter is showing a 4-point jump over the previous survey, from 51% to 55%.

Down Ballot Races:

The race for Lt. Governor is shaping up to be a 3-way race between Kip Holden, John Young and Billy Nungesser. Holden leads with 31%, followed by Young (25%) and Nungesser (24%).

Holden is strong among African‐Americans (72%). Young trails Nungesser in Lafayette, Lake Charles and Alexandria, but makes up the difference with a 12 point lead in the New Orleans media market.

The race for Commissioner of Insurance has Jim Donelon holding at the 50% mark, with the Democrat, Charlotte McGehee, polling 31%. Donelon’s only announced GOP challenger is polling at 9%.

Thank you.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for our next survey or if you have any questions. The presentation is attached.

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.
