A new poll finds Mitt Romney has a 22 point lead over President Obama in Louisiana.
The survey by Magellan Strategies BR has Romney leading the president 59% to 36% with 5% of those polled indicating they were undecided.

In a possible head-to-head matchup, Vitter received the support of 45.2% of those surveyed, Landrieu was favored by 39.8% and 15% of those polled were undecided.
