caroline fayard releases newest poll numbers in la sec'y of state race

this all sounds nice and all but it's months later and we're still waiting on our "caroline fayard loves me" bumper sticker.

Despite what some pundits say is a difficult political environment, there is real potential for a Democratic statewide victory in the 2011 race for Louisiana Secretary of State.

Our recent survey of 700 likely voters in the October 2011 election shows a true toss-up between me and Republican Jim Tucker.

In a head-to-head match-up, I lead Tucker (or similar candidate) 36 to 34 percent with 23 percent undecided.

After allocating the undecided voters by party identification, I maintain a 48 to 44 percent margin over Tucker.

Unlike most recent statewide races in Louisiana—where Democrats faced nearly insurmountable circumstances – the 2011 Secretary of State’s race is quite winnable and will depend heavily on the candidates, their resources, and the quality of their campaigns.

As you may recall, last year I was a little-known outsider who mounted a come-from-behind victory over some very well-funded career politicians to make the run-off in the Lieutenant Governor’s race.

Well this year we are ahead of the game ... Voting is just a few short months away.

Also, be sure to visit my website to keep informed of important campaign announcements and dates.
