Appologies for the title and the shortness of this Diary. I'm a Louisiana native, and you'd be surprised at how many Obama signs are all over the place... I live in North Louisiana, and the town I am in is staunchly republican... but Obama road signs vastly outnumber McCain road signs. I was listening to 870 AM this morning when they broke this poll:

In the telephone survey of 500 registered voters, conducted by pollster Ed Renwick, Republican Senator John McCain earns 43 percent of the vote, while Democrat Senator Barack Obama receives 40 percent. Renwick said that amounts to a statistical tie, since the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 points.

On the question of favorability, Louisiana voters give the two candidates pretty even marks.  Sen. Obama registers 47 percent favorable, with Sen. McCain, 45 percent, meaning it is another statistical tie.

This is so huge for us in Louisiana. Obama might not win outright, but this shows he actually has a chance here. Furthermore, him being on the ballot is going to turn out a LOT of democrats to vote for Landreu over Kenedy. This is good, because Landreu's chances have been slipping as of late. This is the beauty of the 50 state strategy!

God, now I am fired up. I'm going to canvass like CRAZY on election day.

HAPPY HOLOWEEN!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
