Poll: McDaniel Opens 12-Point Lead Over Cochran
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 16 Jun 2014 | by MATTHEW BOYLE

Posted on 06/16/2014 10:14:12 AM PDT by kingattax

BILOXI, Mississippi -- A new poll shows conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel with a commanding 12-point lead the runoff election in Mississippi’s GOP primary over six-term incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS).

The Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll, conducted by Kellyanne Conway of The Polling Company, Inc., shows McDaniel has a 52 percent to 40 percent lead over Cochran.

In a memo, pollster Conway noted too that McDaniel has an “intensity advantage” as 47 percent of his supporters say they are “definite” supporters whereas only 37 percent of Cochran’s say as much.

“With eight days to go before the run-off election in Mississippi, this poll shows that the momentum is with conservative challenger Chris McDaniel,” Citizens United president David Bossie told Breitbart News. “It is clear that Mississippians want a fresh voice in the U.S. Senate.”

Citizens United Political Victory Fund has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars backing McDaniel in Mississippi.

Here’s hoping this portends a massive tidal wave of discontent that drowns the GOP Elite completely and disheartens them immensely.

The phrase “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.” should be the voter battle cry that voting day in MS.

No, it's not.

It isn't over until after the election. Cochran MUST be destroyed.

Even if you don't live in MS, please consider giving financial support to McDaniel.

McDaniels’ campaign is growing, thriving and coming into bloom, while Thad Cochran’s campaign continues to fade and wither in brittle dessication. I know where I would place my bet at this late hour.

On another thread right now, there are several people actively campaigning for another Mitt Romeny run.

We need to carry that through the general election into the foreseeable future.

GOPe socialists must be destroyed.

Democrats must be destroyed.

This isn't "just politics", and we don't need "balance". We need to defeat and discredit the entire leftist establishment. We lose America otherwise.

I knoW this run-off election is not until next Tuesday, June 24th, but tomorrow is another primary election day...and, I urge every American to turn out and vote to destroy the entire Democrat Party, and Barack Hussein Obama with it, come election day, November 4, 2014. By selecting conservative, tea party, Republicans by large margins signals more doom and failure for Obama’s low life Hate America, Democrat vermin!!! Get out there and vote, Tomorrow and next Tuesday for Chris McDaniel in MS.

Hint: the Republican Establishment RINOs would be wise to withdraw Thad Cochran from next week’s runoff.....Cochran is going to get slaughtered!!

Yeah, that’s the ticket, let Bloomie pi$$ away more of his ill-gotten gain. He has plenty more where that came from. I’ll just bet that Ex Governor Boss Hogg Barbour is crapping his pants along with Bitch McConnell (whom I hope loosing to the RAT Grimes).

To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

then salt their lands and have their children fear even the mention of our names in stories about the dead Tea Party and what it did to the fat and lazy RINOs that are now extinct except in the bluest of states.

The RINOs are easily recognized by the umbilical cord that extends all the way to Washington DC and that they only eat what is breast fed from the nipples in Washington since they are incapable of making or growing anything that hasn’t been stolen from a tax payer’s home.

I agree. Get out and vote.

However, generally speaking, when the incumbent is polling below 50% that is a sure danger sign.

Cochran is obviously toast and his multiple gaffes recently-—including the fact that he didn’t even know that Cantor was defeated (he probably doesn’t even know who Cantor is, much less Brat) show precisely how out of touch and cacooned in DC he really is.

Yep, that's their play, make conservatives think it's ok if they skip cuz McDaniel is so far ahead.

Chris had better be concentrating on getting his vote out.

Never count your chickens before they have hatched. MCDANIEL should campaign like he is ten points behind! The surest ways to lose is to think and act like you are going to win big.

Go home, thad!

The problem with that is so many Washington politicians haven't been 'home' in years/decades, so they would get lost trying to find their home towns.

Every election, we find out about more politicians who actually reside in or around Washington, DC. Some of them even have voter registrations there, rather than their home states.

Helms was an exceptional rarity, someone who never forgot why he was sent to Washington. Almost everyone else does, especially after about 6 years.

It's a mistake to get overconfident. New voters to the McDaniels side are less likely to go to the polls if they think it can be won without them. McDaniels is up against the establishment. He and his team can't afford mistakes.

What's appalling is the RINO ptb aren't having Cocharan withdraw. Is it really that improtant to them to keep constitutional conservatives out of DC at all costs?
