Polling Louisiana...

Louisiana was the winner of this week's poll on where to poll- what questions do we need to ask to get at the heart of public opinion related to the oil spill and what impact it might or might not have on the Senate race?

Tom, this is for you! I'm writing this in advance, telling you what you're going to see in the poll: Big decrease in support for offshore drilling, Obama very unpopular, Jindal popular, Vitter maybe not very popular personally but with a big lead over Melancon, reason: Vitter may be [insert whatever] but Louisiana is done with Democrats for a long time for now.

You should ask if people blame the Republicans or the Democrats more, in LA?

Have they seen Melancon's break down in a Congressional hearing on the spill? How would they rank Mary Landrieu's response to the spill? You might also ask about the Landrieu recall.

Could the Senate candidates response to the oil spill change your vote?

Does Jindal's response to the spill make you more or less likely to vote for him?

At the moment there's no Democrat running in 5 of the 7 congressional districts. Not a lot to poll there.

Landreiu v. Stormy Daniels, 2014.

How about asking Louisianans to rate the performance of the their politicians in regards to the spill? See how Vitter, Jindal, Melancon, and Landrieu's actions are perceived.

I don't know why so many people voted for Louisiana, but if you're going to poll it, you might as well check on the 2012 GOP Presidential primary.

A Landrieu vs. Daniels Q would rock b/c Landrieu would probably be behind!... Might get good headlines....!

Ask how Marry Landrieu/Jindal/Melancon/Vitter/and other relevant public official is doing.

Ask about Landrieu's reelects as well.

Ask about the state legislature. Republicans picking up either body could clinch a pro-r gerrymander.

Should BP CEO Tony Hawyard lose his job?

Louisiana leaders want Gulf drilling to resume

"NEW ORLEANS (AP) - At the same time they are venting their fury on BP over the Gulf of Mexico spill and its calamitous environmental effects, Louisiana politicians are rushing to the defense of the oil-and-gas industry and pleading with Washington to bring back offshore drilling—now.
As angry as they are over the disaster, state officials warn that the Obama administration's temporary ban on drilling in the Gulf has sent Louisiana's most lucrative industry into a death spiral.

They contend that drilling is safe overall and that the moratorium is a knee-jerk reaction, akin to grounding every airplane in America because of a single crash. They worry, too, that the moratorium comes at a time when another major Louisiana industry—fishing—has been brought to a standstill by the mess in the Gulf.

"For God's sake, don't finish us off with a moratorium," Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said this week."

Note: Attorney General Caldwell is a Democrat

I am asking you to poll LA-02 so we can finally get a poll to see how vulnerable Cao is. This is the district where the post Hurricane questions, ethics, and oil spill would really be of use. And you can do what you did in South Carolina: start your LA poll there, and then move onto the state.

Im more interested in the second state (Wisconsin, I hope).

I second polling LA-02 if its not too much trouble. Would be interesting to see Dem primary, how Cao does, if people even like him, how he does if Sen. Ed Murray runs as an Independent.

The more interesting poll from Louisiana would be for LA-02 seat.

Will you poll the Lieutenant Governor's race (it will be in November and it and the Senate race will be the only statewide offices up for election)?

As far as I'm concerned, Cao will be re-elected because Cao starts with a "C", so it's in the beginning of the alphabet....

The second state is Illinois.
