Even though poll after poll heralds this candidate or that one as leading the race for Louisiana governor, an LSU survey released Thursday suggested that roughly a third of the state’s adults are paying little attention or even know the candidates well enough to form an opinion.
Other than to say the frustrations voiced by Louisiana voters at the way direction is going seems to suggest Gov. Bobby Jindal would have a tough time getting reelected this fall if he were on the ballot, Michael Henderson, Research Director of LSU’s Public Policy Research Lab, said the poll mainly showed that it’s too early to make definitive statements about how the election will go this fall.
Large majorities remain too unfamiliar with Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne, and state Rep. John Bel Edwards to even offer opinions about them, according to LSU.
