Well, thank the Lord. I hope this is true. The more I watch this, the more I believe that Terrell will win.

But a message to the Louisiana GOP: Don't be overconfident. You need to win not only this Senate seat, but also the open US House seat.

My prayers are for a Terrell victory. Landrieu is a fraud. She stands for nothing significantly good, and should be voted out.

Could there be something wrong with this poll? I can't believe that 41% of registered Democrats are supporting the republican that didn't even get 40% of the voters in the first ballot.

***Among registered Republican voters, Terrell acquires 73% of the vote compared to 16% for Landrieu. With registered Democrats Landrieu nets 51% with Terrell receiving 42% of the vote. ***

If this is true, Landrieu is in deep dieu dieu!

Note reistered voters VS actual voters. Big difference.

OBSERVATION: This election may not mean the difference in which party is in the majority this year; but Terrell will serve 6 years. Her election in 2002 makes holding the Senate in 2004 and 2006 elections easier. And with a close Senate in the balance, this is essential -- especially with RINOs and McCain around.

I wish those poll results are true, but this sounds WAY too overconfident. I can't believe for a moment that many Dems are going for Terrell !

This is a poll of Dem strength of Landrieu, not John Breaux. These numbers are realistic. The Dems have like a 2:1 edge in registration in the state, but many are "blue dog" Democrats. The fact that Landrieu failed to avoid a runoff itself supports the notion that she doesn't have a strongly committed base. She wins the more liberal Democrats, but conservative Democrats could go to Terrell or just not show up.

John Breaux is nearly twice as conservative as Landrieu and the conservative "blue dog" Democrats that like Breaux aren't as partial to Landrieu.

How is Terrell a moderate?

Beats me. They said the same thing about Norm Coleman, who is pro-life, pro-tax cut, etc. Maybe it's wishful thinking.

Poll Ping!

This is a partisan poll, so it probably overstates Terrell's position a bit. Even so, unless it is wildly inaccurate, it looks like good news.

If you want on or off my poll ping list, let me know!

When you're only up one run in the 8th inning, it isn't a good idea to spend a lot of time gloating.

The Louisiana run-off is in December, and I am asking for support for our last "man" at bat, Suzanne Haik Terrell.

Suzanne Haik Terrell, graduate of Loyola University Law School, former New Orleans City Council member, first Republican woman to hold statewide office (as Elections Commissioner.) Since taking office in 2000 she has achieved many of her goals, cutting the bloated Department's budget by canceling contracts, streamlining operations, and downsizing the Department's spending practices and personnel.

"We will never create a culture in this country that honors life until we have a pro-life woman making the case every day from the Senate floor. Today there are no pro-life women in the Senate. That must change. Louisiana can change it."--Suzanne Haik Terrell

Please send a contribution by credit card on-line or mail a check if you cannot personally volunteer time.

Conservative VS Moderate republicans of LA !

LA republicans are divided into 3 groups...
1)First Group doesn't belief in abortion in any case.
= Conservative republicans of LA.
2)2nd group which believes in a abortion in case of rape,
incest.
= Moderate republicans of LA.

3) Pro-choice republican = Liberal republicans

Terrel needs atleast 35-40% of the RATS to win.

And Landrieu is acting like Republican-light, so in the 'Rats' eyes, the choice is between a fake Repub to work in the minority or a real Repub to work with the majority. Sometimes, even some 'Rats can do the right thing.
