A new poll commissioned for the National Republican Senatorial Campaign finds voters in Louisiana are overwhelmingly opposed to Obamacare. In the survey of 600 voters, 62 percent say they oppose the health care law, including 53 percent who say they strongly oppose it. Only 33 percent support Obamacare.


Louisiana's senior senator, Democrat Mary Landrieu, voted for Obamacare in 2010 and is up for reelection next year. At the moment, Landrieu has a four-point lead over her most prominent Republican opponent, congressman Bill Cassidy, at 45 percent to 41 percent.

Voters in Louisiana also have a low opinion of the job President Obama is doing, with 37 percent rating his job favorably and 59 percent rating it unfavorably.
