The Survey Research Center of the University of New Orleans (UNO) recently released the results of an automated phone survey where it asked voters in Louisiana to give their opinion on the state’s budget situation and who they believe is responsible.
The poll was conducted on March 13 and also evaluated the favorability of the governor and Louisiana’s state legislature as well as party preference going into the upcoming U.S. Senate election. The survey was created by Tony Licciardi, a UNO graduate research assistant, who operates under the director of the UNO Survey Research Center, Edward Chervenak.
Of the 631 people who took part in the survey, they believed, by an 8 to 1 margin, that Louisiana is currently experiencing a financial crisis. The majority of the people blame former governor Bobby Jindal, while a very small percentage place the blame on current governor John Bel Edwards.
According to the survey, Edwards is seen as more favorable than unfavorable, achieving a nine point positive rating amongst respondents. A quarter of those asked had no opinion of the governor. When asked to rate the legislature, 15 percent gave the legislature a positive review while 53 percent gave them an unfavorable mark.
