President Donald Trump’s net approval rating of Louisiana voters has plummeted over the roughly two years that he has presided over the nation.
According to a Morning Consult poll of registered voters, released Monday morning, Trump’s net approval sits at 13 percent, that is, positive minus negative rating.
His overall rating nationwide sits at 44 percent approval, versus 52 percent disapproval.
A ho-hum election day. That’s what Louisiana voters experienced a few weeks back. Now a runoff election is scheduled for December 8th with just a few choices for voters on the ballot. At the top of the ticket is the race to fill the void left by former Secretary of state Tom Scheduler who resigned from office under a cloud. And many political pundits and reporters were surprised over the first primary results.
Thus, Bloom congratulated the winner in the race, Jay Banks.
The competition is always spirited for there are so many potential turkeys to consider in 2017. Previous winners have included former President Barack Obama, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, former House Speakers Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, former Florida Governor Jeb! Bush, Ohio Governor John Kasich, U.S. Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former New Orleans Mayor and current federal inmate Ray Nagin and former U.S. Congressman and recently released federal inmate William “Dollar Bill” Jefferson.

IA cantrellThe Desiree Charbonnet campaign is on the attack with two days left in the New Orleans Mayor's race against LaToya Cantrell. On Tuesday the University of New Orleans poll indicated that Charbonnet trails Cantrell by 11 points. Last week, another poll evidenced an 18 point gap.
LaToya Cantrell has become the money machine, not so, Desiree Charbonnet. The Inter-Denominational Ministerial Alliance, who already supported Desiree Charbonnet has injected itself into the race again, calling for Cantrell’s resignation, which prompted her quick rebuke. Also, a date has been set for the WWL TV forum, two days from election day.
No doubt, the Desiree Charbonnet campaign is in "udder" "spread the Latoya Cantrell credit card controversy mode. Just how much mileage and bad press it can get from it before New Orleans Mayor's Race election day, is a topic for serious discussion. Or, better said--will voters leave home and vote for Cantrell, without it (being top of mind)?
This morning, I discovered that LaToya Cantrell is ahead of Desiree Charbonnet by a whopping 18 points, according to a research firm LJR Custom Strategies on behalf of the local branch of a national education reform organization, Democrats for Education Reform.
The Desiree Charbonnet for Mayor of New Orleans campaign has just shot another city credit card broadside to the LaToya Cantrell for Mayor campaign today with a press release, claiming that the Councilwoman Cantrell has "even more questions to answer" today as it claims "a large number of specific violations".
