NEW ORLEANS -- In politics, the only poll that counts is the one taken on election day.
But, one year out, recent voter surveys in Louisiana show incumbent Mary Landrieu in another tough fight as she seeks a fourth term in the U.S. Senate.
"I think this is going to be a very close race," said Landrieu. It always is. I've run them before and look forward to running this one.
Given Louisiana's U.S. senate election is more than a year away, that can only mean one thing: It's time for some polls!
Sure enough, the dog days of August have produced four polls, and while overall the news for incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu isn't as rosy as she would like, it's not as dour as her opposition contends.
For one thing, most of them are right-leaning polls. That makes it easy for the Landrieu camp to dismiss, and perhaps with good reason.
