According to a new survey by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, slightly more Louisiana Republicans blame President Obama for the federal government's botched response to Hurricane Katrina than blame President George W. Bush.

A total of 29 percent of the Republicans surveyed placed the blame on Obama, while 28 percent said Bush, who was president at the time, was to blame. A plurality -- 44 percent -- said they were unsure who was at fault.
