LA-06: AnzaloneLiszt Research Polling Shows Cazayoux (D) Beating Jenkins (R)

Cross-posted over at Daily Kingfish and Daily Kos.

Bumped from the diaries -- Jonathan... Very exciting stuff. If you want to help out, head over to Act Blue today.

Yesterday, the Cazayoux campaign released the results of a poll it commissioned AnzaloneLiszt Research to do on the LA-06 special general election. Here are the results:

CandidatePoll %
Don Cazayoux49%
Woody Jenkins42%

Also, Cazayoux's favorable/unfavorable ratings are 55%/13%, which improved since the March primary, with the favorables increasing by 15%, compared to Woody's 56%/34%, which has remained static over the last month.

Further, the Republican generic ballot advantage in this district is gone ... with voters saying that 43% of them will vote for the Democrat, and 41% of them will vote for the Republican. That means Woody will have to win on his own merits.

And those merits are not good. The Daily Reveille, the LSU student daily paper, has a column showing that Woody announced the abolition of the following agencies in a speech to the Council for National Policy in 1995:

Departments of Commerce, Housing and Urban Development, Energy and Education as well as the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Legal Services Corporation.

Can you imagine the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina without those agencies? The rebuilding process would have barely started ... housing issues for the working poor would likely be unresolved even more than they are now, small businesses would have a harder time getting back on their feet, and the school system would be a bigger mess than it is now.

But this thing is far from over, as the Freedom Fund, a 527, co-founded by Ari Fleischer, is on the air here in the Louisiana 6th in support of Jenkins, attacking Cazayoux in an effort to drive up his negatives.

To that end, donate. You want to bankrupt the Republicans? Make them spend more on defense. Donate here.

Also, I am doing an interview with Don himself tomorrow, and I have already called for questions ... if you have any questions you'd like asked, let me know. Just be advised that I will not be asking questions on the conservative hot-button issues. I'm looking for questions on the War in Iraq, the mortgage crisis, the economy, unions, the expanding gulf between rich and poor, free trade deals, FISA, bailout of Bear Stearns, and on and on. Just post them here, and I'll check them all out.

Thanks, Mr. Singer ...
I'm so excited about this race that I can't wait until May 3rd. I have finals until the day before for law school, but once I'm out of that last final, I'll be doing whatever they need me to do for GOTV.

True ...
but brownsox threw water on Childer's chances. I don't get that. Forcing the GOP to spend money on defense is a precious thing, and we've done that in 2 of the 3 upcoming specials - MS-01, LA-06 and LA-01. The Democrats running in those districts all deserve our support and admiration for doing what a lot of us like to talk about - standing up and fighting for Democratic values in conservative districts. And they're doing it the hard way - out in the public view AND on the ballot. All three candidates - Don Cazayoux, Travis Childers, and Gilda Reed - have my respect and admiration. I've donated to both Cazayoux and Reed, and if I had more $$, I would give to Childers, too.

Re: True ...

I think what brownsox was trying to do is emphasize that we should be excited to be competitive.  I understand his (her?) point, but I agree with you.  The whole "moral victory" thing is very 2004-2005.  We play to win now.  If we can win in Hastert's district, and hold a steady lead in LA-06, there's no reason we can't win elsewhere too.

elections have consequences

I look forward to resolving the primary so we can all get on the page of smacking the GOP so hard they are reeling for decades from the electoral consequences of obediently following Bush into Iraq.
