Nearly a month has passed since Rasmussen released the latest poll on how the Presidential election is shaping up in Louisiana. On September 11, ARG had Louisiana up for McCain by 7 points, only to be followed, two weeks later by that Rasmussen poll, which showed McCain up by 15.

Based, in large part, on these polls, FiveThirtyEight.com has McCain’s odds of winning Louisiana at 90%, but obviously, there’s a problem here: Louisiana hasn’t been polled in a long time, and during the interim, many important and incredible developments have occured– the economic crisis, the Presidential debates, and a national media blitz by Mr. Obama.

Pollsters could do this State and country a great service by polling Louisiana again.
