Shades of the 1993 election in which Mary Landrieu rode the wave of the Sugar crises in South America, David Vitter, behind in the polls, all runoff season, is building a typhoon over the international Paris terrror crises.

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.
