A new LJR Custom Strategies survey conducted for the Education Reform Now Advocacy group (1/14-27; 600 LA likely voters), a supporter of Gov. John Bel Edwards (D), finds the first-term state chief executive way ahead of his two current prospective Republican opponents.
According to the LJR results, Gov. Edwards leads Rep. Ralph Abraham (R-Alto/ Monroe) and land developer Eddie Rispone (R), 45-17-4%, if the state’s jungle primary were held in the present time. But, this respondent group consisted of 53% self-identified Democrats, 34% Republican, and 13% unaffiliated. Typically, the Louisiana electorate has a much different complexion.
A December poll from Remington Research conducted for Rep. Abraham found that he and Gov. Edwards would tie at 44% apiece if the two advanced into the general election, providing an example of early polling disparity.
