I will be doing another poll next year once we know who all the candidates are going to be.   As of now, how does it look in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Kentucky?

Edit: the poll is now officially closed.

Jindal should win re-election comfortably, MS likely GOP hold, KY looks could be competitive but looks like a dem hold at the moment.

LA and KY should be easily won by the incumbents.

Don't know what's going on in MS. Barbour is term limited I guess ?

Who could run there ? Democrats don't seem to have anyone popular there to win.

He always gets talked up but never runs for anything. Not that it matters, I doubt Jesus could win in Mississippi nowadays if he had a (D) after his name.

Barbour is term limited.

The Lt. Governor is running for the Republicans, Phil Bryant, I think. There are other potential Republican candidates as well.

Not sure about the Democrats.


Jindal is pretty safe and Bashear seems to have gain a lot of ground recently, wasn't he struggling in approvals a year or so ago?

Louisiana   29 (45.3%)
Mississippi 28 (43.8%)


LOL at the hackishness of this forum.
The percentages are off, Lousiana is 100% and Mississippi is just about there.

Look at the total vote.

Louisiana and Mississippi will certainly be held by the GOP, and we have a realistic shot at winning in Kentucky if we get someone good to run. I personally think Todd Lally should give it a go, but we'll see.

Barring an (unexpected) Gene Taylor run in MS, the only seat that could possibly switch parties is Kentucky's. I think Beshar hangs on.

Attorney General Hood would be a top-notch recruit, along with Rep. Taylor.

Beshear is in good shape; KY is unlikely to flip.

MS is leaning towards being a GOP hold. Gene Taylor is probably the only Democrat who would have a chance.

Beshear is likely safe, since Williams has a load of baggage. Bryant will likely keep it for the GOP. Louisiana will see anywhere from 63-71% of the vote for Jindal. Their candidate field is pathetic: Caroline Fayard is the best in a field that includes Kathleen Blanco (praying she runs), Foster Campbell, Walter Boasso (2007's resident bigoted trolls), Jim Shaw (not running) and a couple of other no-names. The LA Democratic Party is in nuclear meltdown. If Fayard runs for LG, as she seems to be indicating, then they'll put up a no-name for the formality.

Bobby Jindal will win re-election 61-36. He’ll instantly be seen as Presidential timber for 2016 or 2020 (particularly if Obama’s looking strong at the end of 2011). The Democrats decide to put up token opposition after a spirited internal struggle in the party to find a viable candidate. Given how Louisiana has shifted to the right since the Clinton years, Jindal should have a very easy time winning re-election and positioning himself for a future in national poliics. His two back to back wins will provide a strong foundation for that.

I think Mitch Landrieu passes in 2011 on challenging the governor, given how hostile Louisiana has become to Democrats lately.  Some Democratic retread will challenge Jindal.

Does anyone know if Attorneys General Buddy Caldwell (D -LA) and Jim Hood (D- MS) are running (or planning to) for the top office in their respective states?  How strong would they be as candidates?  And is it true that Caldwell is planning on switching parties?

I don't think there's been any indication that either are interested in running for Governor. Democrats are stuck with the dregs in both states.
