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.
The poll was conducted by John Couvillon and JMC Analytics and Polling.
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.
How did Representative John Schroder beat his Republican opponents in the Louisiana Treasurer’s Race, only to come in second against Democrat Derrick Edwards, who some believe has no chance to beat his GOP foe?
Democrat Derrick Edwards is leading the pack with Republican Angele Davis in second, behind by 11 points but significantly ahead of her fellow Republican competitors.
JMC Analytics was commissioned to conduct the poll.
