THE POLLS AND THE RACE
If anyone believes this race is over, whether David Vitter is behind by 8 points or twenty points, you must be fooling yourself.
It seems that Missouri is the place for mob rule. Last year, America witnessed a breakdown of order in Ferguson following the death of African American teenager Michael Brown. Even though the Justice Department exonerated Darren Wilson, the white police officer involved in the shooting of Brown, protesters still maintained the fiction that Brown was ruthlessly killed in a racist manner. They repeated the false mantra, "hands up, don't shoot," even though witnesses say that Brown never uttered those words. Instead, he attacked Wilson shortly after the officer asked Brown to move out of the middle of the street. Protesters also conveniently overlooked the video evidence showing Brown robbing a store minutes before his encounter with Wilson.

Polls toll for John Bel
Four polls conducted thus far on the runoff race for governor of Louisiana show Democrat John Bel Edwards with the lead over Republican David Vitter.
When i first saw the email and then the ad, i thought of Richard Nixon and his checker speech.
I know that Vitter has been compared to Nixon over the past few weeks, after his detective was caught spying. His credibility became even more strained after Vitter did a somewhat odd, "I am not a crook" routine, telling WDSU reporter that the act--taking surreptitious videos and audio is not spying and was "silly".
The Louisiana gubernatorial Election Day is approaching and the water cooler conversations are getting serious.
So, it’s time for some levity--which brings us to Politics With a Punch, Louisiana Governor's Election edition 2015, “funnier than laughing gas”.
by Stephen Waguespack, President of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry
The Louisiana people are rightly frustrated and they are looking for hope. They want a new approach to old problems, inspiring leadership to rally around, honesty to admire and integrity to emulate.
Will conservatives continue to vote in sizeable numbers for Jon Bel Edwards Election Day, November 21?
Why did Jon Bel Edwards unleash an ad, this weekend--that, in some camps, is considered to be an atomic bomb that could obliterate David Vitter’s campaign for Louisiana governor while in other camps, is a stink bomb that brings out the Edwards’ uglies.
Maybe Republican Party Chairman, Reince Preibus, the Louisiana Republican Party and Roger Villere should have listened to WGSO radio Wednesday morning. They might have learned something.
This week, a bevy of new polls continue to show Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson at the top of the GOP presidential race.
As one of the front runners, Trump has faced a variety of mean spirited attacks from fellow Republicans, Democrats, media commentators and liberal groups, including Hispanic advocacy organizations.
According to pollster John Couvillon of JMC Analytics, David Vitter’s campaign has some real issues it needs to confront, if the US Senator is to beat democrat Jon Bel Edwards to be the next Louisiana governor. The election is November 21.
