New Poll Has Landrieu Trailing Behind Cassidy In Runoff Election

A new bipartisan poll by Fox News may be the worst poll yet for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in her bid for re-election.

The poll, conducted by Anderson Robbins Research (A democratic research group) and Shaw & Company Research (A republican research group), has Landrieu trailing behind challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) in a December runoff election.

In the random sample poll of 617 likely Louisiana voters, 51 percent said they would vote for Cassidy in a runoff election against Landrieu, while only 38 percent said they would vote for Landrieu. 

As for the jungle primary in November, Cassidy led with likely voters, receiving 35 percent. Meanwhile, Landrieu got 31 percent, or four percentage points behind Cassidy. Long-shot candidate Col. Rob Maness received 7 percent of the vote, while one percent of likely voters said they would vote for another candidate.

34 percent of the respondents said they identified as “Democrat,” while another 45 percent said they identified as “Republican.” Just 17 percent said they were “Independent” or a third party.

Voters who were registered prior to 2013 yet had not voted in at least one of the last fourstatewide general elections were excluded from the sample. Respondents who indicated theywere unlikely to vote in November were also excluded.

Results based on the full sample have a margin of sampling error of + or – 4 percentage points.
