Decision 2020: Will Louisiana “mail it in” this November ?

Louisiana voters tend to be creatures of habit. For years, mail in voting was an insubstantial part of the electorate, and nearly everyone voted on Election Day.

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 […]
