The University of New Orleans’ Survey Research Center (SRC) conducted a live interviewer telephone survey of 605 likely voters in Orleans Parish. We asked respondents to rate Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s job performance. We also inquired into which candidates likely voters would vote for in the two at-large city council elections. Lastly, we asked respondents to tell us what they thought was the biggest problem facing Orleans Parish. Their responses were recorded verbatim.


Much appreciation to the students in Dr. Chervenak’s Political Parties and Politics class, and the students in his two US Politics classes who participated as interviewers. We would also like to thank Ross Gernon from the Office of Information Technology for his technical support on this project. Special thanks to Dr. Anthony Licciardi for the gratis use of his polling software MyPeople123.
