NEW ORLEANS – An exclusive new WWL-TV statewide poll shows the contest for president may be closer than many had predicted among Louisiana voters.

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.

Seriously, if Louisiana ends up going to Obama, I am going to literally R-O-F-L and I might have to put a sign in the yard that says “Yeah…it did….that just happened”.

I’m not going to get my hopes up though, all the other polls have McCain in a comfortable lead. However, the fact that anyone is even saying it’s a remote possibility is pretty shocking.

    I will go vote. I promise. Yeah, I don’t know about La going to Obama. I can’t see it talking to (or hearing from) people I come in contact with. We shall see.

    Yeah I don’t really see it happening either, but it would be pretty awesome. Then again, Clinton took Louisiana away from Bush and Dole both, I guess we will just have to wait and see.
