labi logoby Stephen Waguespack, President of Louisiana Association of Business and Industry

Louisiana losers: Vitter, LABI, Jindal, education reforms, TV debates
Written by

loser 3Four months ago in the Louisiana governor’s race, Senator David Vitter was a slam-dunk.  He seemed to have it all.  Gobs of PAC money flowing in from all over the U.S., strong support from most of the Republican establishment including his GOP colleagues in Washington, and a huge lead in the polls.  There was no way he could lose.  But he did.  Some how, some way David Vitter snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Democratic Governors Org says Thanksgiving “Thanks” for Jon Bel Edwards win over Vitter

gop mapThe Democratic Governors Association has taken a moment from its Thanksgiving prep to say thanks for a gift of gifts, a democrat winning a major election in the South.

And there's?  Well, I think that's it.

UNO's Chervenak says Edwards v. Vitter election further proof of live interviewers vs. automated polls

chervenak brown nov25We hear the complaint that political polls are not accurate and so why use them?  In the recent Louisiana governor’s race with David Vitter against Jon Bel Edwards, there were some polls that were very accurate and others who missed the mark significantly.

(Below is an incomplete list compiled by Huffington Post Pollster.com.  The list did not include a tracking poll by Verne Kennedy of MRI, which the day prior to the elections, determined Edwards 55 to Vitter’s 45, one point off of the 56-44 spread.
