504 likely voters, taken Aug. 13-18:

59% Bobby Jindal (R)
30% Rob Marionneaux (D)

But after poll respondents were read a paragraph of flattering information about Marionneaux and negative information about Jindal, the results flip-flopped, with 48 percent saying they would vote for Marionneaux and 40 percent for Jindal.

Jindal campaign manager Timmy Teepell described the survey as a "push poll" and said the results aren't credible because the respondents were given negative information about Jindal. He noted that it came from the same firm that produced a series of surveys last year that purported to show Democrat Charlie Melancon with a chance to beat Republican David Vitter in the U.S. Senate race.

Vitter beat Melancon by 19 percentage points, 57 percent to 38 percent.

"This poll is a joke. Push-polling is not scientific," Teepell said. "It plays upon the worst instincts of people, and the results aren't credible. But this is not the first time Anzalone-Liszt has engaged in the practice in Louisiana."

The firm, with offices in Montgomery, Ala., and Washington, D.C., polls mainly for Democratic candidates and has done surveys for President Barack Obama, U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans, and others, according to its website. A phone call to the firm's Montgomery office late Thursday was not returned.

Teepell refused to share the results of the campaign's own internal polling, but he said the surveys are in line with the 59-30 lead in the Anzalone-Liszt poll before voters were provided with the negative information.

So if Marionneaux managed to raise like $10 million dollars in the next twenty days this could be competitive.

Attention whores will attention whore. No one can raise that kind of money, so they'll let Hollis take the fall and focus on the Legislature, though the battle there is more intra-Republican than R v. D. They're waiting for 2015 when they hope Mitch Landrieu will run against either Dardenne or JNK.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

God, I hate push polls.

The campaign will slightly help Marionneaux due simply to increased name recognition, but unless something big happens it's still Safe R.

This isn't a push poll for the record. A push poll is a phone call conducted under the guise of a poll but is really just meant to influence you. They're like a more complex robocall.

This is jut an internal poll.

No way!

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

So basically, Marionneaux's strategy should be to somehow provide voters with flattering information about himself, and negative information about Jindal.  If he sticks to that, he'll win.

I could so be a political campaign strategist.
