According to a new survey done by Public Policy Polling in Louisiana, slightly more Republicans in the state blame Barack Obama for the inadequate response to Hurricane Katrina than blame George W Bush. Even though the hurricane that battered Louisiana occurred while Bush was president, and three years before Obama became president.
Interestingly, the largest group of Republicans — 44% — said they didn’t know whom to blame. While 29% blamed Obama and 28% blamed Bush.
In the same poll, respondents were asked whom they would like to see as the GOP nominee for president in 2016. Jeb Bush received 17%, a close second to Rand Paul, who received 18%.
