New Poll Numbers in Governor’s Race
Election day is this Saturday and pollsters are busy trying to see how you will vote in the Governor's race.
Republicans have made headway across Louisiana, winning nearly all statewide offices (except Governor) and taking control of both houses of the Legislature.
In this latest poll, a sample of likely households was chosen from registered voters. 65% of the people were on land lines and 35% were cell phones.
600 people answered the questions. The survey was conducted October 3-5. The margin of error was 4.0%. JMC says the demographic breakdown was 68-29% white/black (3% “other”), while the party registration of respondents was 45-35% Democratic/Republican (20% Independents). The geographic breakdown of the
respondents was as follows: 5% from Alexandria, 21% from Baton Rouge, 14% from Lafayette, 5% from Lake Charles, 8% from Monroe, 36% from New Orleans, and 12% from Shreveport.
The Louisiana Association of Health Plans (LAHP) engaged JMC to conduct the poll.
