Incumbent under 50 is never a good sign in an independent survey.

But this is identified as a Republican pollster and released by the challenger, so Landrieu is probably still safe.

Hmmmmm...interesting. Landrieu has done everything she can to appear as a conservative. Oil drilling, YES! Bailout, NO! Maybe it's just the incumbents' year?

Iowa City:

Rasmussen had Landrieu +13 in their last survey. Still, this is the best Senate pick-up the GOP has?

Why would anyone in LA vote for any candidate who held any elected position during Katrina.

The FEC should require anyone who votes for a Katrina incumbent be given a full cranial CAT scan

KipTin:

At first Landrieu was supposed to be the Democratic seat most at risk, but that changed some time ago. Landrieu distanced herself from Obama. And Louisiana needs the oil royalties from off-shore drilling, which she has always supported.

FYI: Landrieu did not fail Katrina victims. Maybe you need to get a cranial implant of factual info.

Geeze, did you guys miss the big fat (R) next to the pollster or that fact that this came from the Republican's own campaign? This is at least a 10 point race in Landrieu's favor, and that's a blowout for a Democrat in Louisiana.

Looks like the Dems may be asleep at the wheel. It would be a shame if they get the necessary wins for 60, and then loose this one.

I guess I wasn't clear in my first post.

Internal polls are only released when they suit the purpose of the campaign. Given that the poll is sponsored by the challenger in this race, we should assume that it is being released primarily to aid in his fundraising and increase enthusiams among his supporters.

It is unlikely that an independent poll would show Landrieu below 50%.

Democrats will hold this seat. I listened to a thing on NPR about this very race yesterday. People see her as pretty moderate, and it looks like she won't be going anywhere.

Landrieu won't lose this seat. The GOP were ready to pull up stakes and roll out of La. last week. It was only Vitter's urging that changed that stance. Kennedy is an ex-Democrat, who switched parties in the hope of falling into the vacuum of decent GOP candidates. Though he's no dummy, he's a cynical opportunist, who has switched positions more often than my daughter changes outfits. There was much GOP hand-wringing, and the GOP's support of Kennedy is less than whole-hearted. Most importantly in this race, Landrieu delivers for La. They're not going to give that up.

Kip- thanks for the suggestion.

Can you help me understand how she helped prepare LA for Katrina?

Listen, I am a DEM. I also think that anyone in LA that would vote for a GOP president that was eating birthday cake with BUSH the day the leves broke should get a cat scan and have sharp objects removed from their house
