I've got some more Governor's race stuff in the hopper. But here's another poll released yesterday.
The stunning results reveal democrat State Rep. John Bel Edwards leading his closest competitor by nearly ten points, with 28% of respondents favoring him over U.S. Senator David Vitter, who sits at 19%.Poll was conducted before the terrible WDSU debate and before Gambit decided to try and make Dardenne a thing. (More on all of that later.)
This exclusive gubernatorial poll, conducted by JMC Analytics & Polling of Baton Rouge, is the the first to reveal any significant separation by one of the candidates.
These new numbers could also spark concern for the two other notable republican candidates, who’ve both dropped into single digits. According to the Local 33 News and JMC Analytics poll, 8% of respondents prefer Scott Angelle, while Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne commands just 7%.
