Skip to comments.Landrieu, Cassidy tied in runoff (Louisiana)
Posted on 07/07/2014 4:01:52 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
PPP's newest Louisiana poll finds a race largely unchanged from February: Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy are likely to advance to a December runoff, and that match up is a toss up. Landrieu leads with 44% for the November election to 27% for Cassidy, 8% for Rob Maness, and 5% for Paul Hollis. Neither of the Republican alternatives to the establishment candidate are gaining any steam.
Even with 17% of voters undecided it will be a pretty difficult road to 50% for Landrieu in the November election- she has only an 8% approval rating with those remaining undecideds, and they voted for Mitt Romney by a 70/14 margin in 2012. Most of those folks seem likely to end up deciding who to vote for in November between the trio of GOP hopefuls.
The likely Landrieu/Cassidy match up for the December runoff is tied at 47. Among those who support Maness or Hollis or are undecided for the November election, 68% move to Cassidy for December compared to only 11% who move toward Landrieu. Even though only 6% of voters are undecided in that match up, they don't set up great for Landrieu- 61% voted for Romney to 20% who voted for Obama, and she has a 14/65 approval rating.

I feel good about this race. Mary Landrieu’s claims of clout are belied the Obama Administration’s actions.
When the matchup is even or the democrat is less than 5% behind they usually make it up quite easily with fraud.
OK I admit I’m confused. She isn’t going to lose in November? And she is tied in a likely December runoff election?
Yup, I was just thinking the same thing
The most unsavory was Landrieu's $4.3 billion "Louisisana Purchase."
THE PAPER TRAIL IS HUGE Sen Landrieu (Scumocrat-LA) sold her aye vote in what Forbes Magazine dubbed "The 'Louisiana Purchase" that included a massive $4.3 Billion to Landrieu
FORBES REPORTED the Democrats nailed Landrieus support for Obamacare w/ a greenback bribe. Landrieu, critics believe, pledged her vote in exchange for some $200 million more additional federal funds for Louisiana. Except that, due to a drafting error, the law ended up giving Louisiana $4.3 billion: more than twenty times the assigned amount. MORE HERE http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml
BACKSTORY In the fall of 2009, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was trying to get the necessary 60 Dimocrat votes to pass the Affordable Care Act. He needed every Dim on board, which gave waffling senators a great deal of leverage. In Landrieu's case, she connivingly saw that selling her aye vote could get her maybe $200 million federal dollars. Obama complied. Reid chalked up another vote for Obamacare. But not the measly $200 million but $4.3 billon was attached to the Obamacare bill earmarked for Landrieu.
How $4.3 billion to Landrieu was calculatedly attached to the Obamacare bill, and how Obama and Reid failed to catch and fix it, is yet another indictment of the Obamacare atrocity. The payoff to Landrieu should be investigated as an indication of how EVERY Democrat came to vote for Obamacare....and perhaps helped elect more loyal Democrats.
<><> Where'd the money go, Democrats? <><>
If the Democrats are within 5 or 6 percent of a win they will win. They’ll just make up the difference with fraud.
Local couple upset after receiving pre-marked voter registration card from "Covered California" (Cali O/Care)
10news | 03-29-2014 | Preston Phillips / FR Posted by Kevin in California
A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state's Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.
Watta surprise (cackle). Turns out Obamacare is a vehicle for consolidating Dummycrat power.....w/ a multi-billion dollar slush fund.
The Untraceable $8 Billion ObamaCare PR Budget---truly govt fraud at its finest. Egged on by Pelosi, no one in Congress told Americans about Section 4002---which mandates an $8B untraceable fund to "promote" Obamacare (apparently b/c Boobamba had so little confidence in his signature legislation).
In 2010 Taxpayers are extorted $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion........
....the reasons for all those O/Care delays, fixits, exemptions, waivers, extensions, etc, are becoming crystal clear.
(1) throwing millions of Americans off affordable health plans,
(2) burdening Americans w/ ruinous deductibles,
(3) nationalizing 1/6 of the US economy,
(4) installing IPAB's (Death Panels),
(5) abandoning seniors and the chronically ill,
(6) pulling $750 out of Medicare,
(7) decimating intergenerational transfers of wealth (grandma/pa's holdings go to the govt---not to you).
SIGNING "THE BIG EFFIN' DEAL" (now known as "The Big Effin' Debacle")
"Those Democrats leering over my shoulder owe me bigtime.
The healthcare bill insures we get a permanent Democratic majority."
" All except those Tea Party types, swallowed hook, line and sinker my promises that they could:
(1) keep their existing health plans,
(2) keep their own doctors that they like,
(3) keep their 25-year-olds on the family health plan,
(4) never be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition,
(5) sign up instantly on my tech-savvy government Web site,
(6) buy insurance only after becoming seriously ill."
(7) save $2,500 in annual premiums in the bargain....
(8) All without any new taxes."
"Them sonovagun Tea Partiers will rue the day they criticized my wonderful bill."
Cassidy has, so far, basically never started his campaign.
OK I admit Im confused. She isnt going to lose in November?
And she is tied in a likely December runoff election?
La has what is called a “jungle primary”. All candidates are on the ballot regardless
of party in Nov. If no one gets 50% +1 then the top two go to a runoff in Dec.
Your comment worries me. Are you saying Cassidy does not have the fire in the belly to win?
And because there are 2 minor Republicans foolishly splitting the vote, Cassidy can’t get to 50% in the primary like Vitter did 10 years ago. So there will be a runoff.
I’m glad that you feel good about it, several people are whining about Cassidy.
Here’s another article that sheds some light on the campaigns. Palin has
endorsed Maness so who knows what that will throw into the mix.
It’s USA Today but maybe worth a read.
I would assume he does, but he’s not answering any of the ads. And the one I heard irritated me because he attacked Obama, which is good, but he neglected to wrap Landrieu around Obama, or vice versa. Don’t his people remember how she accosted Obama as he walked down the aisle for the State of the Union speech? Was she seeking a tryst? Not to mention her voting record.
The latest poll doesn’t back that up. The numbers of Maness and Hollis added to Cassidy’s “whopping” 27% only adds up to 40%.
I’m a Maness supporter. I don’t like Cassidy, never have. He’s not running any ads and Landrieu is running an ad that has her and her Daddy, Mayor Moon Landrieu, former Mayor of N.O., having a little friendly banter back and forth about her so-called accomplishments. These ads have been running non-stop. The Republican establishment has never put up a formidable foe against her. Now that we have a good shot at unseating her, they have backed another loser.
It would be great to see Landrieu out of office. She is such a phony.
