|Luckiest governor alive|
Bobby Jindal is a lucky man.
He's got no competition to speak of with qualifying for this fall's elections just a few weeks away, and his gubernatorial re-election campaign is flush with cash – more than $9 million on hand. That's sufficient funding in Louisiana to drop kick any candidate's hind side on any given day.
Meanwhile, word is out that the noted polling firm of Anzalone-Liszt has been gauging Jindal's vulnerability in a match-up with Sen. Rob Marionneaux, an ethically challenged Democrat from Maringouin who cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
You may remember Anzalone-Liszt. That's the same polling firm that told us just weeks before election day last fall that then-Congressman Charlie Melancon was within striking distance of unseating Sen. David Vitter. Vitter, an ultra-conservative Republican, was re-elected with 56 percent of the vote while Melancon, a so-called moderate Democrat, pulled a measly 37 percent. It was a butt whipping of the finest order.
Anzalone-Liszt makes its living polling for Democrats. The firm also could be accused of "cooking" polling results from time to time in an effort to give a Democrat client a leg up in raising money to mount a campaign. After all, it's far easier for a candidate to raise money if he or she is in possession of a poll that shows a race is winnable.
