On Friday, Bayoubuzz.com published a summary of the Grigsby poll's findings. The Grigsby poll assessed the opinions on a sample of Louisianians on politicians, elections, and current political issues in the state.

Recently, another experienced Democrat, four-term ex-Governor Edwin Edwards, announced that he’s running for Congress. Landrieu has faced a storm of criticism, particularly from Republicans, for her endorsement of Obamacare. Also, Landrieu has just assumed the powerful position of Chairperson of the Senate Energy and Natural Resource Committee, an important assignment for an energy-producing state such as Louisiana.
