Skip to comments.Landrieu leads in conservative’s poll -- Louisiana
Posted on 04/04/2014 9:13:04 AM PDT by deport
U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu leads the three Republicans challenging her reelection and
U.S. Sen. David Vitter is viewed more favorably than Gov. Bobby Jindal, according to a
statewide poll paid for by Lane Grigsby, a Baton Rouge contractor who frequently contributes
to conservative candidates.
Though Landrieu leads with definite and probable voters across the state, she only has
39.3 percent of the 600 voters interviewed between March 24 and March 26. The poll by
Magellan Strategies of Baton Rouge, which was released Thursday, has a margin for error
of plus or minus 4.1 percent.

In which New Orleans bar did they find these 600 respondents?
Sure are a lot of pro-RAT polls throwing around lately, huh?
Is that to moralize their base or validate the planned vote fraud.. both.
39.3% for an incumbent well-known senator is an unbeatable threshhold of support, isn’t it?
She only has 39% with 3 republicans running against her. That number is sure to cause panic in her campaign.
Her unfavorables are above 52%.

I suspect it does and with some luck maybe she can be taken
into a runoff and defeated.
It is well-known that undecideds break heavily for challengers, and that an incumbent running significantly lower than 50% is in some trouble. It’s a long way to November, but Landrieu can’t be too happy about these numbers.
Given that the article is from The Advocate, I'm guessing it was a gay bar.
Landrieu leads each Republican individually, but whichever Republican finishes first among the Republicans will probably defeat her in the run-off, regardless of whether who finishes first and who finishes second. Landrieu is at 39% and her probable support among the undecideds is weak because many of the undecided are undecided about which Republican to support. I continue to believe Louisiana is a likely pick-up.
U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu leads the three Republicans challenging her reelection ....She won't be running in November against THREE republicans, so when the actual GOP nominee for the seat is named her lead probably becomes a substantial deficit.
... she only has 39.3 percent of the 600 voters interviewed between March 24 and March 26.
May not be significant. I think Louisiana has run-off elections if she doesn’t get 50% she’ll have to face the stronger Republican — and maybe get smoked.
Louisiana has a ‘jungle primary’ in which all candidates are on the ballot, GOP, DEM, IND,
etc and you pick your choice. It takes 50% + 1 to win. If not the top two go into a runoff.
The primary will be held on Nov. 4, 2014, and a runoff on Dec. 6.
She won’t be running in November against THREE republicans, so when the actual GOP nominee
for the seat is named her lead probably becomes a substantial deficit.
She will be running on Nov. 4 against all comers that have qualified to be on the ballot.
A runoff if needed will be on Dec. 6. Remember LA has a jungle primary which all
candidates are on the ballot regardless of party affiliation.
She is toast!
Amen! Somebody say it ain’t so! I can’t stand this woman.
Yup. If she was 45% or higher to all others, she’d be in a strong position. However, Hollis, Maness, and Cassidy voters by and large will cross over between the three. I’ve yet to meet a Maness supporter who said Cassidy or Hollis were off the table and vice versa for all three.
It’s at the point where Republicans are choosing their favs. After the first election, they’ll unite. They’re also charged up. Her biggest asset is a political machine that can mobilize and cheat (Woody Jenkins can vouch for that).
That she’s under 40% with a negative over 50% is cause for celebration.
I think if they can get her into a runoff then there is a
good chance she’ll be defeated. But the Landrieu name
still is well known in SE LA.
Past this bar. They used a voodoo priestess to conduct the interviews.
