Public Policy Poll: Landrieu, Cassidy Tied in Runoff

PPP's newest Louisiana poll finds a race largely unchanged from February: Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy are likely to advance to a December runoff, and that match up is a toss up
Raleigh -- (Press Release) PPP's newest Louisiana poll finds a race largely unchanged from February: Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy are likely to advance to a December runoff, and that match up is a toss up. Landrieu leads with 44% for the November election to 27% for Cassidy, 8% for Rob Maness, and 5% for Paul Hollis. Neither of the Republican alternatives to the establishment candidate are gaining any steam.

Even with 17% of voters undecided it will be a pretty difficult road to 50% for Landrieu in the November election- she has only an 8% approval rating with those remaining undecideds, and they voted for Mitt Romney by a 70/14 margin in 2012. Most of those folks seem likely to end up deciding who to vote for in November between the trio of GOP hopefuls.

The likely Landrieu/Cassidy match up for the December runoff is tied at 47. Among those who support Maness or Hollis or are undecided for the November election, 68% move to Cassidy for December compared to only 11% who move toward Landrieu. Even though only 6% of voters are undecided in that match up, they don't set up great for Landrieu- 61% voted for Romney to 20% who voted for Obama, and she has a 14/65 approval rating.
