Cassidy Leads Two-Way Race As Landrieu's Approval Plummets

More bad news for Mary Landrieu this morning. Democrat polling outfit Public Policy Polling is out with new numbers on the Louisiana Senate race, and they show Landrieu down three at 48-45. That’s a significant fall for Landrieu… about a year ago, PPP had her up 10 points and polling at 50 percent. Landrieu’s campaign and her argument for re-election are not connecting with Louisiana voters. She has lost ground in every successive PPP poll since last August.

See below for a breakdown of the polling results from RNC Research.
