Decision 2017: (Special Election) Treasurer’s race poll #3

For nearly two decades, John Kennedy (originally elected in 1999 as a Democrat, and almost a decade later became a Republican) has served as Louisiana’s State Treasurer. In the December 2016 runoff, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, and a special election is being called in October to fill this vacant position.

This is one of several races that will be on the October 14 ballot (early voting is currently in progress), and JMC was engaged to poll this race. There are two main takeaways from this poll (which can be viewed here): (1) Derrick Edwards, as the lone Democratic candidate, remains in the lead, and (2) Republican Angele Davis maintains her second place position.
