LA-Sen: Landrieu holds double-digit lead over Kennedy

It is worth remembering that Mary Landrieu was considered at one time the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent in the country.

So much for that GOP pickup opportunity.

A new independent poll in Louisiana's U.S. Senate race released Thursday continues to show Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu with a double-digit lead over her Republican challenger, state Treasurer John Kennedy.

Forty-nine percent of the voters surveyed by pollster Ed Renwick of Loyola University backed Landrieu, compared with 34% for Kennedy. Seventeen percent said they were either undecided or wouldn't answer the question.

Landrieu led Kennedy in all areas of the state, except for the Baton Rouge region, according to the poll, which was conducted for a consortium of TV stations.
