A modern (and transparent) way to poll major races

In the nearly 10 years I’ve been in business, polling in Louisiana (and other states across the country) is something I do – and love doing – for a living, whether the race is a national, statewide, or a local one. I’ve noticed in the political world, however, there is a scant availability of independent, […]

Decision 2020: Tennessee U.S. Senate GOP Primary Poll

Tennessee is a Southern state whose partisan divisions were once so predictable that ordinary citizens could recite them by heart (East Tennessee was Republican since the Civil War, Middle Tennessee was “Andrew Jackson Democratic”, and Western Tennessee was an extension of the Deep South (and, therefore, formerly Democratic)). Suburbanization around Nashville, combined with a general […]

Decision 2020: Alabama General Election U.S. Senate Poll

Alabama is a state in the Deep South that once had rock solid allegiance to the Democratic Party, but that allegiance has steadily declined over the past few decades: Republicans have continuously held the Governorship (with two exceptions) since 1986, and between 1996 and 2017, it elected two Republicans to the U.S. Senate. Furthermore, the […]

Louisiana Vaccination Poll

In recent years, the issue of whether or not to vaccinate children and/or adults has become somewhat controversial. To determine what true public opinion is about vaccinations among Louisianians, the Louisiana chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (LAAAP) engaged JMC Analytics and Polling to conduct a 16 question survey.

The last unsettled Congressional election from 2018 has finally concluded, with Republicans holding onto a US House seat in the Charlotte, NC area that they have held since 1963.

Decision 2019: North Carolina 9th Congressional District Poll

Until very recently, the Deep South was solidly Democratic, with only scattered Republican beachheads. One such district is the 9th Congressional District of North Carolina, which is centered in and around Charlotte. This district for decades elected Republicans, although its Republicanism is (by today’s standards) the more moderate variety. Accordingly, Republicans have seen this district […]

In Louisiana, local offices may or not be held at the same time as the same fall elections where all statewide elected officials and members of the House and Senate are elected. Jefferson Parish is one of the parishes that does, and its Parish President’s race always attracts some attention, given that Jefferson Parish is […]
