Democrats Are In Deep Trouble
The NBC/Marist poll seems to indicate Nunn's momentum has stalled and found Perdue leading 48% to 44%. If neither candidate gets above 50% of the vote, the race will come down to a runoff that will be held next month. The poll shows Perdue with a 49% to 46% lead in a hypothetical runoff. The NBC/Marist poll also showed good news for the GOP in Louisiana where incumbent Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu is facing multiple challengers led by Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy. According to the poll, Landrieu is leading Cassidy 44% to 36% Louisiana will also have a runoff in January if neither candidate gets above 50%. The poll found Landrieu slightly behind Cassidy in a hypothetical runoff. Another poll released by the liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling on Saturday looked slightly better for Landrieu, but it still found her unable to avoid - or win - a runoff. Polls in the Bluegress State have shown Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell leading his Democratic challenger, Allison Lundergan Grimes, for some time now. The NBC/Marist survey found McConnell ahead 50% to 41%. That nine point lead is a slight improvement on the eight point gap McConnell enjoyed in NBC/Marist's last poll of the race, which was conducted in September. PPP's new polling similarly found McConnell leading Grimes 50% to 42%. That's a turnaround from April when PPP showed Grimes with a slim 45% to 44% lead. Along with the new numbers in Georgia, Louisiana, and Kentucky, other polls released over the weekend showed good signs for the GOP.
