POLL: CHRIS MCDANIEL SHOOTS UP TO EIGHT-POINT LEAD OVER THAD COCHRAN
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 15 Jun 2014 | by MATTHEW BOYLE

Posted on 06/15/2014 10:38:26 PM PDT by kingattax

HATTIESBURG, Mississippi — A new poll from WPA Research shows conservative Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel has shot up to an eight-point lead, outside the margin of error, over Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) a little over a week from the runoff election.

The poll of 500 likely GOP primary runoff voters has McDaniel leading Cochran 49 percent to 41 percent, with 10 percent undecided. McDaniel beat Cochran in the primary about two weeks ago, getting 1,300 more votes. The poll was conducted June 9 to June 10 and has a margin of error of 4.4 percent.

Now, heading into the runoff, WPA Opinion Research’s Ryan Steusloff wrote in a memo to interested parties about the new Mississippi polling days, “It is clear Chris McDaniel is well positioned to win on June 24th.”

I’ve got some bad news for the Republicans. Americans are not happy about what is going on along our southern border. Allowing the Kenyan to start flying illegal alien invaders into America was a dumb move.

Looks bad for the GOP-E. How much money did McConnell extort and is about to waste for Thud’s political ads?

McConnell just had a fundraiser that raked in about $825k for Cochran.

Yes!

It is important to add on to Brat's upset in Virginia to make the mainstream media address the reality of the revolt, that it is not a fluke limited to the seventh District of Virginia caused by a poorly run campaign but a national phenomenon.

That is important because it is necessary to intimidate the Republican establishment as much as possible and to encourage the conservative base. A victory in Mississippi will make it much more difficult for the Mike Murphys and Karl Roves of the world to convince the Republican establishment that they can continue to go along and get along.

I watched two interviews with Cochran over the past two weeks. In some ways, I feel sorry for the guy because he really isn’t physically or mentally up for this election. The age factor is really taking a toll on the guy and the Republican apparatus in Mississippi should have been looking for a replacement character back five years ago who could have fit into their agenda and had the stamina for an election.

If I were on the Cochran team....I’d take him off any more interviews....do strictly TV ads and pretend he’s perfectly fit and mentally alert.

I will add this....I think this is all for the sake of getting up to the 2016 period, where Cochran announces suddenly he’ll retire and some unheard Ford dealer out of Jackson suddenly is announced as the next temp senator.

That's a very on target point. The decisive Brat victory was not an outlier but, I think, an indicator of what's yet to come. As Jim Robinson has stated repeatedly, "Rebellion is brewing!", and indeed it is.

You were reading my mind, phrase for phrase! There has to be ongoing support on both sides to permit this criminal dumping of illegals. Eventually well find out whose bright idea it was. I say George Soros and/or Valery Garrett.

. . .

I suspect that was their plan but he was forced into a runoff and now we can all see his deteriorating mental condition.

Frankly, I feel sorry for Cochran. He’s mentally unfit, barely knows what’s going on, and is being used and abused by the establishment GOP to both stick it to conservatives and line pockets with whatever he’s able to loot from taxpayers.

It’s very, very sick what the establishment is doing here.

“McConnell just had a fundraiser that raked in about $825k for Cochran.”

When and if McDaniel wins, it will be a second instance wherein the voters are pi$$ed off enough that the old “money is the mother’s milk of politics” cannot overcome their anger. And our half-breed narcissist in chief is playing into the process with his last gasp, wholesale violations of his oath of office. I just hope that Scrotum Neck McConnell is turned out. If holding the Senate means we have to keep him, holding the Senate won’t mean much of anything, and personally I think we can take back the Senate without his traitorous a$$.

When Thad falls, he will take Haley Barbor down part of the way with him. O used to think so highly of Mr. Barbor, not anymore. He is a RINO through and through.

I suspect there’s at least five or six Senators (both Republican and Democrat) who wouldn’t pass a mental fitness test (McCain is one of them), if required for the job. For the House...there’s probably twenty such characters. They are simply pretender political figures...neither Republican or Democrat in character...just pretending enough to help their sponsor achieve the results required.

I think this is important too. The eliet groupies need to wake up and realize that this is a generational shift, and it will continue until the budget is brought under control.

Too bad someone of McDaniel’s ilk didn’t rise to the top in SC to challenge Grahamnesty.

I’d be happier with a larger sample size. I think for a state of 3 million, a 4% MOE, and a 95% confidence level you’d need 6 or 7 hundred in your sample size. This one has 500, and even in the article it says something about an 8 point lead being outside the MOE. That means they must have a fairly large MOE, never a good thing.

This poll was taken before Cochran’s admission of doing “indecent things with animals.”

If McDaniel was up by 8 points then, he’s got to be up by 15 now.

The fact that McConnell, Barbour, and Rove are still going forward waging a lost battle against McDaniel is proof enough of why they need to be flushed out of the GOP. They should be rallying to the inevitable nominee, not trying to tear him down. They’re only hurting the party at this point.

Someone should ask Thad to comment on the situation in Iraq, and see if he says something about having full confidence in President Bush’s handling of the situation.

BREAKING: Elect Chris McDaniel Tour Announced

Tea Party Express - Restore Libery, Honor The Constitution

BREAKING: Elect Chris McDaniel Tour Announced

Dear Patriots,

Thanks to the generous contributions of our Tea Party supporters, we were able to reach our first fundraising goal- thank you so much!

We are excited to announce our Elect Chris McDaniel Bus Tour and wanted to share it with our loyal supporters first.

We will be holding four major rallies the weekend before the June 24th run-off election in key media markets and counties that are strategically necessary for McDaniel to win.


For complete tour details click HERE
.
 
If you reside in Mississippi or a neighboring state, we hope to see you at one of our statewide rallies to support Tea Party Express endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel.

Tea Party Express is once again late to the party.
(Remember the fiasco of Tea Party Express supporting INCUMBENT DEMOCRAT Walt Minnick over Raul Labrador in 2010?)

So now that McDaniel is a shoe in, you guys come rolling in to claim victory and raise more money off the Tea Party movement.

So what is Tea Party Express doing in tough races that need attention and support, where you could actually be having a real and positive impact?

What are you doing for Joe Carr in Tennessee? Jack squat, that’s what.

How about Milton Wolf? The Tea Party Express bus should be rolling through Kansas blasting Rainbow’s “Run With The Wolf” (Ronnie James Dio would have approved.)

But will the Tea Party Express doing any of that, or just raise money off of these races and then show up only after the Tea Party candidate has the wind at his back?

Tea Party Express endorsed Iowa’s Joni Ernst the day before the primary, when the outcome was pretty well known. Such courage!

Sorry you are so misinformed and anti Tea Party Movement.

You might want to do a bit of serious research before you embarrass yourself further.

Seems the mods didn’t like your concern troll buddy Sam, he rode the lightening.

No I didn’t report him, I’d rather play with trolls a while then ask to have them zotted.

Got a grudge against the TPX, huh?

Stick with watching CNN and Chelsea Handler and outing your FIL to the NSA for having too many guns.

I’m sure he is glad you bragged about it on a popular public forum.

Yeah concern trolls out themselves pretty well.

So uninformed, TPX had a tour in April this year and Dr. Wolf spoke at more than one Tea Party at which the TPX tour was instrumental in bringing out a bunch of people.

Milton Wolf is dynamic Tea Party Conservative and he took us by his house to show he had one. His opponent finally rented out a room in the state after he got called on not even living in the state he has been representing for MUCH too long!

Seems little Sammie didn’t have a clue about what the TPX has been doing.

Not to mention his buddy who posted after him with his girlie little laugh.

Lightweights.
