Two recent polls, including one conducted by Louisiana pollster John Couvillon of JMC Enterprises of Louisiana, showed that Donald Trump has made strong gains in the State of Florida--a very important swing state and perhaps a state Trump needs to carry, in order to win the presidency.
Based upon three recent polls, Republican US Senator David Vitter trails Democrat Louisiana Rep. Jon Bel Edwards in double digits.
How can this be, since he has been the logical leader ever since he entered the gubernatorial race, given his name recognition, influence, incredible lead over his competitors in contributions (3 to 1 over his combined competitors in the primary race)?
Two polls published this week: One by Verne Kennedy of MRI and the other by John Couvillon of JMC Analytics.
The former placed Democrat Jon Bel Edwards in a lead by 11 to 18% over Republican US Senator David Vitter, the latter, at 20%.
