Six months before the Mississippi GOP primary, Sen. W. Thad Cochran is in a dead heat with attorney and former radio host state Sen. Christopher McDaniel, according to a Dec. 13 Human Events/Gravis poll of 691 voters there, who voted in a Republican primary in 2010 and or 2012, with both men polling 40 percent with 20 percent undecided.
Overall, the results indicate that Senator Cochran is in a tight spot, said Doug Kaplan, president of Gravis Marketing, a Florida-based polling and call center company. The poll also asked about other issues and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent.
Cochran is virtually tied with McDaniel, and he is again under the 50 percent threshold when running in a generic run against a Tea Party candidate, he said. Cochran polled only 45 percent of the vote compared to 35 percent for the generic Tea Party candidate.

Support Chris McDaniel to oust Thad Cochran in MS
“Til death do us part” used to be a wedding vow, now it seems to have been transferred to every member of the US Senate.
Some of those guys will do anything for a final nap in the Senate Rotunda.
Thad should try to retain what little credibility he has left and announce he’s dropping out of the race.
If he doesn’t, I hope he is trounced in a way that will send a shiver up the spines (to the extent they have spines) of the Republican Senate “Can’t We All Just Get Along” Caucus.
Cochran used to be a damn fine senator in the 1980’s. So was Orrin Hatch. So was John McCain. It is appalling how rudderless, spineless, and prone to betraying our senior leadership has become since the days of Reagan.
I’ve called Senator Cochran’s office many times in the last five years about specific legislation asking him to vote for or against, he rarely voted the way I asked which was the Conservative way. I got my first mail from him recently, just before he announced he would run for re-election, where he explained his position on Syria, which agreed with mine, in response to one of my phone calls. In October Joe Nosef, chairman of the Republican party in Mississippi, came to our DeSoto County Republican Club meeting to tell us that Senator Cochran was Conservative and that his 46% rating was just a number and didn’t mean anything. I know what those votes were and it means something to me. I support Senator Chris McDaniel for United States Senate, Cochran can go to his retirement home in Alabama.
...with both men polling 40 percent with 20 percent undecided.
20% Undecided about a long-time incumbent? Not good news for Cochran. The majority of Undecideds always go for the challenger.
I can hardly wait to vote against Thad by voting for McDaniel.
