• On Election Eve, Landrieu Could Lose Louisiana By A Whopping 26 Points

    At least that’s what the most recent public opinion poll shows. According to GEB International’s analysis, Mary Landrieu (D-LA) is down to her opponent Representative Bill Cassidy (R-LA) by an astounding 26 points.

    The election has ‘trouncing’ written all over it, as the Real Clear Politics average of all polls shows Cassidy leading Landreiu by more than 17 points.

    With less than 24 hours before voters head back to the polls in Louisiana’s runoff election, MSNBC is comparing Landrieu to roadkill.

    MSNBC’s Luke Russert said that Democrats have left Landrieu “on the side of the road.”

    “The number of white voters in the south willing to vote Democratic, it’s fallen like this in Louisiana, it’s fallen like this in so many other Southern states,” MSNBC host Steve Kornacki said. “It’s the reason Mary Landrieu is in trouble, and for Democrats in most of the South right now, offices are unwinnable at the statewide level.”

    I’m not ready to take a victory lap just yet. In American politics, anything is possible.

    But it’s not looking good for the three term incumbent.

    If Landrieu goes down, Bill Cassidy will become the ninth Senate seat picked up for the GOP in one election.
