Landrieu Holds Solid Lead for Re-election

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Louisiana finds Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) leads Rep. Bill Cassidy (R) by ten points, 50% to 40%.

Key finding: "The key for Landrieu is that she still has a fair amount of crossover support from Republicans. 23% of them approve of her and 23% also support her in a hypothetical match up against Cassidy. That's a lot more support than you see most Democrats managing across party lines these days, particularly in the south."

Two GOP polls released yesterday found a much closer race.
