Louisiana Senate race … bright shade of RED.
Republicans appear to have a safe hold in the Louisiana Senate election in 2010. Republ;ican incumbet David Vitter has a commanding lead over Democrat rival Charlie Melancon, 57% to 33%.
Incumbent Republican David Vitter has an even more commanding lead this month over his top Democratic challenger in Louisiana’s race for the U.S. Senate.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state shows Vitter leading Democratic Congressman Charlie Melancon 57% to 33%. Just three percent (3%) would opt for some other candidate, while seven percent (7%) are undecided.
So much for the theory that all incumbents are in trouble in the upcoming midterm elections. Vitter certainly disproves that notion. The troubling trend for Democrats is that their incumbents are in trouble, not the GOP. Also in a continuing trend, Vitter finds himself ahead his Democrat foe among voters not affiliated with either party leading by more than three to one.
