Better News For Landrieu In The Vox Populi Poll

We’ve never heard of this organization, but they’ve got the Cassidy-Landrieu race a bit closer than Magellan Strategies (56-40) and Gravis Marketing (59-38) do…

A new Louisiana survey released by Vox Populi Polling today found that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bill Cassidy leads Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu 53 to 42 percent, with 5 percent unsure. In addition, Cassidy is up big with Independents, winning with them 58 to 31 percent over Landrieu. Cassidy has seen a big bump after the Nov. 4 open primary. In our recent Oct. 13-14 survey, Cassidy led Landrieu 48 to 44 percent in a head-to-head, with 8 percent unsure.

On the heels of last night’s United States Senate vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline, it is interesting to note that voters aren’t moved by Mary Landrieu’s efforts to bring the legislation before the Senate for a floor vote. When asked if it made voters more likely to vote for the incumbent Democrat, 39 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Bill Cassidy and 32 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Mary Landrieu.

And here’s the methodology…

The sample size for the survey is 761 active voters taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.55%. 626 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 135 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted November 16-17, 2014 by Vox Populi Polling.

They’ve got the poll sample as 66 percent white, 29 percent black – which would make it nearly identical to the Nov. 4 electorate, and in the voter ID question 40 percent say they’re Democrats and 37 percent say they’re Republicans. They also have President Obama’s approval rating in Louisiana at 38-61.

The whole poll results are here.
