Senate Election 2010: Louisiana Senate Republicans Vitter and Dardenne Hold Double Digit Leads Over Democrat Rivals
Early polling in Louisiana shows that Republican Senator David Vitter holds a 10% advantage over Democrat Charlie Melancon for the 2010 Senate election. However, another Republican, Secretary of State Jay Dardenne, holds an even bigger lead over Melancon, 46% to 33%.
Senator David Vitter holds a 10-percentage-point lead over Democrat Charlie Melancon in an early look at Louisiana’s 2010 General Election. The first Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 survey in the state finds the first-term Republican incumbent with 46% of the vote while Melancon attracts 36%.
But another Republican, Secretary of State Jay Dardenne, holds an even bigger lead over Melancon, 46% to 33%.
Melancon, a U.S. congressman since 2004, has already announced his intention to challenge Vitter next year. Dardenne is the best-known of the Republicans who is reportedly considering a primary challenge of the incumbent.
At this point the senate seat looks safe for Republicans as Real Clear Politics points out that President Obama was a 41 percent job approval rating in the state; 59 percent disapprove.
President Obama has a 41 percent job approval rating in the state; 59 percent disapprove. Gov. Bobby Jindal’s (R) approval is strong — 65 percent, with a disapproval rating of 34 percent. In the state, 36 percent of voters favor health care reform, while 61 percent oppose.
