Decision 2017: (Special Election) Treasurer’s race poll #4

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 (in person early voting has concluded, although absentee ballots are still being accepted), and JMC was engaged to poll this race. There are two main takeaways from this poll (which can be viewed here): (1) The numbers (and, for that matter, the undecided percentage) have not changed much since the last poll was released a week ago, and (2) Democrat Derrick Edwards and Republican Angele Davis will likely face each other in the November 18 runoff.
