Abraham leads in 5th District poll


Republican Ralph Abraham has surged into the lead in the 5th Congressional District race, while “Duck Dynasty” cousin Zach Dasher also made a move and incumbent U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister has slipped to third, according to the latest poll from The Glascock Group.

It’s the latest shakeup in the topsy-turvy 5th District race, which had McAllister leading with 24 percent less than a month ago in a previous Glascock poll.

Abraham, a rural doctor from Alto, led the latest poll of 501 respondents with 24.5 percent, followed by Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo, the only Democrat in the race, with 18.3 percent.

McAllister, R-Swartz, was next at 15.7 percent, followed closely by Dasher, R-Calhoun, with 15.1 percent, a 4-percent improvement from the previous poll.

Public Service Commissioner Clyde Holloway, R-Forest Hill, climbed to 10 percent after his first campaign ad hit TV last week, followed by businessman Harris Brown, R-Monroe, at 6.6 percent, former Grant Parish District attorney Ed Tarpley, R-Alexandria, at 5.6 percent, Eliot Barron, Green Party-New Orleans, at 2.4 percent and Libertarian Charles Saucier of Ponchatoula at 1.8 percent.
