A new  "survey of 274 Republican primary voters"  in Louisiana finds that more of them blame Barack Obama for the poor federal response to the 2005 Hurricane Katrina than blame George W. Bush for it. The poll's "crosstabs" show that the more conservative a Republican primary voter declared himself to be, the more that she blamed Obama for this 2005 federal governmental failure to deal with the wrecked New Orleans and adjoining areas. Whereas 17% of "Very conservative" Republicans said that Bush was "More responsible for Katrina," 36% of them said that Obama was, and 47% said they were "Not sure." By contrast, all of the Republican primary voters who were surveyed blamed Obama only slightly more than Bush: 29% of them blamed Obama, whereas 28% blamed Bush; 44% weren't sure.

This was a poll of only people who voted in Republican primary elections in that state: they are the Republican Party base in Louisiana.
