Sen. Landrieu Leading in New Poll
A new poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu leading the runoff field that's vying to take her U.S. Senate seat by a comfortable margin. But the New Orleans Democrat has another main opponent that could give her rivals strength as November approaches: undecided voters.
The poll, a survey of 1,075 Louisiana residents conducted by the New York Times and Kaiser Family Foundation, showed Landrieu earning 42 percent of the vote. The next closest registered opponent was Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge), who garnered 18 percent of the vote. State Rep. Paul Hollis (R Metairie) and Co. Rob Maness got 5 and 4 percent of the vote, respectively.
However, all three of the GOP candidates were overtaken by undecided voters, which got a combined 30 percent of the vote. Twenty percent of respondents said they didn't know or didn't answer, while another 10 percent signalled they would rather vote for someone else, or won't vote.
The poll also asked voters to weigh in on Landrieu's job approval rating, and undecideds could once again hold sway on that question. Forty nine percent of respondents said they approved of Landrieu, while 45 percent said they didn't. However, another 6 percent said they didn't know or gave no answer.
In non-Senate race items, the poll also quizzed respondents on what they thought of Gov. Bobby Jindal and U.S. Sen. David Vitter.
Vitter, who plans to run for governor in 2015, garnered a 51 percent approval rating.
Meanwhile, 54 percent of voters disapproved of Jindal's job. The gov's results were identical to those of another question that asked Louisiana voters if they approved of President Barack Obama's job. In most of Louisiana, the Prez is seen as wildly unpopular. Over the last two election cycles, Republicans have sought to tie any Democrat who runs for office directly to Obama.
