if you think that the Louisiana Governor's race will be a virtual cake-walk in favor of the incumbent John Bel Edwards, think again. At least, according to a recent poll by John Couvillon of JMC Polling and Analytics, the governor's race is far from over.
With roughly six months left until elections day, Edwards leads his two competitors Rep. Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone by large margins, however, about one-third of the voters are undecided. Rispone is self-financing much of his campaign and claims he can match the Edwards campaign money needed to win. Edwards leads with 38% of the vote, followed by Abraham's 23% and Rispone trailing with only 7%. A whopping 32% are undecided.
According to Pollster and political analyst John M. Couvillon of JMC Polling and Analytics, early voting in America and yes, in Louisiana, has been a smash hit.
In this state, the early voting, (mail and in person) broke all prior records for non-presidential races. It did surpass the 2008 Obama-McCain presidential count. What makes this remarkable is the very fact that the top of the ticket is just a Secretary of State race, not a US Senate conflict or Governor’s race.
Last rites for the Republican-controlled House and Senate?
According to two Louisiana politicos, political writer Christopher Tidmore and pollster and analyst John Couvillon of JMC Polling and Analytics, right now, it's doom and gloom time at the not-so-ok GOP corral.
Yet, we know that mid-term elections are six months away. Based upon the 2016 elections, one can never say "never" in the age of Trump. Still, as the present is precursor to the future, judging by Couvillon's and Tidmore's view of the national political landscape, there could be plenty of cursing and blaming among the ranks of Republicans, this November coming.
A landslide loss of historic proportions? A blue wave ready to engulf America? Are the warning signs currently present that should tell the Republican party nationally to be ready to embrace the worst?
According to Louisiana pollster John Couvillon of JMC Analytics and Polling, Roy Moore is in the driver's seat in the controversial Alabama runoff election for US Senate. Moreover, the automated poll indicates that the sex scandal has not had any material impact on the race.
Ok, folks. Is the Louisiana Democratic Party now the “Comeback Kid”, now that a virtual nobody in the political world, without any campaign money was able to get within ten points from taking home all of the treasurer marbles in the most recent Louisiana Treasurer’s race, which concluded Saturday night?
Is there any lesson learned for the next upcoming statewide election?
In discussing the recent Louisiana Treasurer’s race and the New Orleans elections, in particular, that was the question I posed during the interview I conducted with Louisiana Weekly political editor and WRNO Radio weekend talk show host Christopher Tidmore and John Couvillon of JMC Analytics and Polling of Louisiana.
According to a just-released poll, commissioned on behalf of Louisiana State Representative candidate, Rob Maness, Colonel Maness is in good position in his third attempt for elective office.
The poll was conducted by John Couvillon and JMC Analytics and Polling.
Ask any politico: Elections are a game of numbers. It is a question of where a candidate will place assets to achieve the winning numbers.
While the Louisiana Treasurer’s race did not light up the voter’s interest, yielding a roughly 13.5 percent turnout, there is a very interesting story to be told from one of the individuals involved in the election process.
John Couvillon, polled for Angele Davis’s unsuccessful run. She was one of three Republican candidate who was trying to garner her share of the 65 to 70 percent of the vote that would be likely be split up between the three conservative candidates which included John Schroder and Neil Riser.
