Edwards Short of 50% in Three Polls in LA

The jungle primary for the Louisiana gubernatorial election is sneaking up on us as it will occur in a little over two weeks from today. Three new polls came out last week showing Democratic incumbent well ahead of the two top Republicans, but still short of the 50% he needs to win outright and avoid a runoff. The polls come from We Ask America, Remington Research Group, and JMC Analytics.

Jon Bel Edwards (D-inc) 47%
Eddie Rispone (R) 23%
Ralph Abraham (R) 17%
Gary Landrieu (I) 2%

Jon Bel Edwards (D-inc) 47%
Ralph Abraham (R) 17%
Eddie Rispone (R) 20%
Oscar Dantzler (D) 2%
Gary Landrieu (I) 2%

Jon Bel Edwards (D-inc) 46%
Eddie Rispone (R) 21%
Ralph Abraham (R) 18%
Oscar Dantzler (D) 2%
Gary Landrieu (I) 1%

The We Ask America poll was done September 24-26 among 600 likely voters. The Remington Research Group poll was paid for by Abraham and was done September 25th among 1040 likely voters. The JMC Analytics poll was done September 19-21 among 560 likely voters. Republicans big hope for October 12th is they keep Edwards below 50%. After that, it is a new ball game.

    After reviewing the CAT FIGHT in the last thread, I find I can give points to both my temporarily unemployed frustrated never depressed friend Bitter, as well as my southern friend Wes who loves giving hundreds of men massages. I think they both have some validity in their arguments.

    I just think it’s a more cultural thang…north vs south. Having lived and traveled through both areas, I can appreciate both areas and what they have to offer as well as dislike some geographical customs and attitudes.

    …But folks! DAT’S what makes America great …DAT we can both appreciate and abhor our differences and still be one great nation…unless you’re a Dem…DEY don’t believe America was ever great, is great, or will ever be great…but they admire socialism and communism which does so much for folks.

    Paging McCabe:

    Bernard B. Kerik
    If a cop or
    agent planted evidence or falsified information to indict or charge a suspect, they’d be arrested. How is
    allowed to do it to target
    for criminal prosecution? Why are they above the law?

  4. Wes says:

    Bitterlaw clearly didn’t want to do it. He was kicking and screaming the whole way, but he finally admitted what Menendez does to underage sex slaves in the Dominican is evil. Of course he had to take an obligatory shot at me and was much quicker to attack the South than to attack Menendez.

    Nonetheless we’ve clearly made progress. Bitterlaw has finally admitted the senior Senator from the Sewer State commits evil acts.

    I didn’t think we’d ever get here.

  5. janz says:

    Menendez is a scumbag for all the reasons Wes stated and more – I.e. giving and receiving support from someone convicted of Medicare fraud. So many of the high and mighty politicians in congress hold their noses over Trump’s street-fighting conduct, while hiding much more serious, slimy behavior of their own. It’s pathetic if wasn’t so damaging to doing the business of the people.

  6. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes still won’t say slavery is evil. As for his terrible treatment of women, he does noy deny it.

    During the fight, I was reminded of how great it is to be at the beach. My wife and I drove 1 1/2 hours from the perfect suburb of Radnor to Ovean City, NJ. Perfect beach day.

    “Posted on September 27, 2019 by John Hinderaker in 2020 Presidential Election, Democrats, Ukraine
    Was the “Whistleblower” Part of a Plan?

    The press has universally adopted the convention of referring to the person who started the Ukraine frenzy as “the whistleblower,” in part because his identity is unknown. Until we know his name–he reportedly is a CIA employee–I would rather call him “the Democratic Party loyalist.” Now that his complaint has been made public, along with the transcript of President Trump’s innocuous conversation with President Zelensky, and we have had a few days to observe the Democrats’ behavior, I am starting to think the Ukraine matter may have been orchestrated just as fully as the Steele dossier/Russia collusion hoax.

    Fred Fleitz, a veteran of the CIA, the DIA, the Department of State and the House Intelligence Committee staff, as well as the National Security Council and the White House, has some interesting observations about the Ukraine complaint in the New York Post:

    I am very familiar with transcripts of presidential phone calls since I edited and processed dozens of them when I worked for the NSC. I also know a lot about intelligence whistleblowers from my time with the CIA.

    My suspicions grew this morning when I saw the declassified whistleblowing complaint. It appears to be written by a law professor and includes legal references and detailed footnotes. It also has an unusual legalistic reference on how this complaint should be classified.

    From my experience, such an extremely polished whistleblowing complaint is unheard of. This document looks as if this leaker had outside help, possibly from congressional members or staff.

    Moreover, it looks like more than a coincidence that this complaint surfaced and was directed to the House Intelligence Committee just after Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), an outspoken opponent of President Trump, expressed numerous complaints in August 2019 accusing President Trump of abusing aid to Ukraine to hurt Joe Biden. This includes an August 28 tweet that closely resembled the whistleblowing complaint.
    Also very concerning to me is how the complaint indicates intelligence officers and possibly other federal employees are violating the rules governing presidential phone calls with foreign leaders.

    The content and transcripts of these calls are highly restricted. The whistleblower makes clear in his complaint that he did not listen to a call in question, nor did he read the transcript — he was told about the call by others. If true, intelligence officers have grossly violated the rules as well as the trust placed on them to protect this sensitive information.”

    This looks like a deep state plot.

    We do not need un elected bureaucrats doing this sheot.

    Mark Amodoi(R-NV), the sole Republican Congressman to initially endorse the Democrat impeachment inquiry, retracted such endorsement last night.

  10. jason says:

    It’s Amodei… I kind of remember him being a Paulbot and sure enough…

    “Before his speech, Paul met privately with new GOP Attorney General Adam Laxalt. Nevada’s 2nd U.S. House District Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City, also attended and served as Paul’s “warm-up act,” preceding Paul as a speaker to the crowd.”

  11. jason says:

    I stayed out of the “slavery debate”, but over the years I have heard a lot of wes’ arguments about why the South should get a pass on slavery, and that somehow any of these points makes slavery less evil.

    – the Civil War was not about slavery…zzzzzz

    – There were slave owners in the North too…zzzzz

    – Lincoln’s emancipation did not free all slaves in the North…. zzzzzzz

    – Sherman burned down Atlanta…. zzzzzzzz

    – Union soldier committed the same atrocities as Confederate soldiers…. zzzzzzzz

    – Bitter hates the South, the accent, the food, the weather……..zzzzzzz

    There are others but I don’t want to fall asleep.

  12. jason says:

    I think I missed an important one.

    – Bob Menendez is a scumbag…… zzzzzz

    Hey, Ma, any nibbles?

    In fairness, he claims that he was misquoted.
