NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The University of New Orleans Survey Research Center says Latoya Cantrell has an 11-point lead over Desiree Charbonnet in the race for New Orleans mayor.

  • One-fifth of respondents say they are undecided.
  • Cantrell performs slightly better than Charbonnet with white voters. Cantrell enjoys a nearly 20 percentage point advantage over Cantrell with African-Americans. 
  • Voters who approve of Mayor Mitch Landrieu support Cantrell in the runoff.
  • Mayor Landrieu has a 54 percent approval rating.

The poll, conducted under the direction of UNO political scientist Ed Chervenak with research associates Leah Bordlee and Michael Esealuka, has a 4 percent margin of error at a 95 percent level of confidence. To review the entire poll, click here.
