In the last poll of the runoff, John C. Convillion of JMC Analytics notes the race has now dropped to 4 percent difference. Weeks ago, Edwards led by 22 points.
In the October 24 primary, Democratic representative John Bel Edwards led the field with 40% of the vote in a
39% turnout race. He faces Republican U.S. Senator David Vitter, who finished second with 23% of the vote.
Running a close third was Republican Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle, who received 19% of the vote,
while Republican Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne finished fourth with 15% (five other candidates in the aggregate
received 3% of the vote). JMC had conducted a poll both for Nexstar on the statewide races between October 28-
31, as well as an independently conducted poll earlier this week. This poll (which JMC again conducted
independently) is a final evaluation of where the race stands the day before the runoff.
