Skip to comments.Poll: McDaniel Takes 8-Point Lead over Cochran Days from Election
Posted on 06/22/2014 4:50:52 AM PDT by cotton1706
PEARL, Mississippi A new poll shows that state Sen. Chris McDaniel has surged even further ahead in the final days of his GOP primary runoff against Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), in what has become one of the most epic bouts to date between grassroots conservatives and the GOP establishment.
McDaniel has taken a 52 percent to 44 percent lead over Cochran, while four percent of voters remain undecided in a new tracking poll by Chism Strategies. The poll, conducted on Friday night, surveyed 697 GOP primary voters and has a margin of error of 3.8 percenta number McDaniels 8-point lead is well outside of.
Unless Cochran expands the electorate with general election Republicans and crossover Democrats, McDaniel wins, pollster Brad Chism wrote in a memo accompanying the polls release.
This poll comes on the heels of another Chism poll a couple days ago that had McDaniel at a six-point lead, 50-44.

In any case, it's better to have a poll right before the election that shows you way ahead than neck and neck.
Have to wonder how much money Thad has spent so far on campaign.
Good news but I don’t buy the 4% undecided. Even the dedicated FM listeners have had to be exposed to the race and must have some opinion or maybe they tapped into the state hospital pool of respondents. One never knows for sure.
When a Republican has to try to buy votes from Democrat Blacks in Mississippi, you know he’s on his way out the door. Whoever ran Cochran’s campaign is an idiot.
Like my deceased father-in-law used to say, “Never give them your right name”. Same goes true for who you INTEND to vote for. The least said the better and when the dust settles, they still won’t know who you voted for.
Here's to McDaniel winning the runoff by 10%......
Have to wonder how much money Thad has spent so far on campaign.
He’s probably unaware that there is an election coming up.
It’s not any kind of victory until the seat goes to the Republican, the real election isn’t until November.
If Thaddy doesn’t win , don’t be surprised the GOPe doesn’t run him as a write in.
Forget polls. McDaniel should win by over 90%. Otherwise, there’s more work to be done to convince the electorate that these elitist criminals need to go (every election cycle if necessary).
Ballot box BUMP!
Obama is pleased as punch that Republican Cochran recently endorsed Obamacare....since lock-stepping Democrats who voted for it en masse, are running way from the debacle as fast as their Dummy legs can carry them.
In an interview at a campaign stop, over-the-hill befuddled Cochran called the Obamacare debacle an example of an important effort by the federal government to help make health care available, accessible and affordable. Im glad to be involved in that effort, Cochran added enthusiastically.
"I urge Democrats to vote, for Thad. I need Thad to help me get
another trillion dollars from Congress so that all Americans can
have affordable health care. "
"Thad will help me release a couple dozen more
Gitmo terrorists to live a life of luxury in Quatar."
"Thad Cochran is one of my favorite Congressman. "
"I heartily endorse his reelection."
He will ensure Obamacare reaches every American."
“Have to wonder how much money Thad has spent so far on campaign”
Karl Rove probably knows down to the last dime, and he is none to happy. For that matter I wouldn’t be surprised if some shadowy Rats didn’t give some up as well.
Which means the wild card is how many Dems turn out and vote for Cochran. If he wins the runoff because of that I don't see how the GOP survives the rift.
As far as the GOPe goes he's only an idiot if it doesn't work.
Plus, NPR is giving Thad lots of positive airtime over their radio network. They are going to be p.o.ed when McDaniel wins for wasting all that air time and money on Thad.
Well, I will believe that MS people have THad Enough when it actually happens. MS is among many states stuck on incumbency.
THad Enough has become one of the worst candidates in history; if MS embraces him, it will cause one to regard MS like SC and its perpetual fascination with “Loveable Lindsey”.
“Forget polls. McDaniel should win by over 90%....”
Let’s NOT be overconfident! This poll surveyed “GOP primary voters”. It didn’t survey those who did not vote in the primary but are still eligible to vote in the runoff.
Unfortunately, the winner of the “runoff” will be determined by how many black DemoncRATS the despicable GOPe (and their DemoncRAT allies) can chauffeur to the polls with their “walking around” money.
Maybe, maybe not. This incumbency is a strong draw to the American people; like the moon pulling in the tides.
The voters of Mississippi should realize that Thad Cochran has fully accepted, and taken the mantle as the Obama, Obamabot, Democrat, African-American candidate in the upcoming USA Senate runoff election, being held this comng Tuesday, June 24, 2014!!! The Congressional Black Caucus is toying with the idea to make Thad Cochran, a full fledged member of the CBC on a permanent basis.
As such...all Republicans, Independents, Conservatives, Blue Dog Democrats, etc., should vote for Chris McDaniel to be the next USA Senator from the great state of MIssissippi. GOTV for Chris McDaniels, come next Tuesday, June 24, 2014!!! DO IT!!!
“Whoever ran Cochrans campaign is an idiot.”
Not necessarily...there’s not much you can do when you’re stuck with a candidate like him. But these guys (campaign staff) do have to make a living, so they play the game as best as they can.
I listen to Rush on an FM station (104.9) from Pascagoula. Non-stop ads for both these guys.
Does anyone who regularly listens to NPR even vote in Republican primaries?
What’s all that stuff the MSM put out about the Tea Party being finished? Could they have been wrong?
That’s a good question. I think they do vote in the Pubbie primaries in order to vote in the most RINO candidates, but what percentage of them do I have no idea. Maybe some one can dig around and find out.
Will Karl Rove resign in defiance of McDaniel’s win?
It sure seems like he's senile based on the few comments I've heard coming from him.
Would be nice if they had said when the election is....any body know!!!!

The more the better. The bitter sweet will be even more bitter. Go home Thad, a green pasture is waiting.
Don’t slack off, McDaniel people. There’s an old saying that if the polls say you’re a million votes ahead, campaign as though you’re a million votes behind.
GOPe has thrown everything they have at this race. If Cochran wins they can say the Tea Party is no threat, if McDaniel wins they’re screwed.
Yes. I’d forgotten that many places are converting their AM talk into FM talk as well. Perhaps I should have used Sirius as the example instead.
Your hope should become a true reality next Tuesday evening when the results come in!!! I sincerely hope that the “ALL” voters of Mississippi realize that Thad Cochran, is in reality, the Obama, Obamabot, Democrat, African-American candidate for USA Senator!!! African-Americans are “adrift-at-sea”, not wanting to realize that Obama has thrown them all “under-the-bus”, which is exactly what Obama has done!!!
Actually, every single voter in the great state of Mississippi should cast their vote for Chris McDaniel. They have a golden opportunity to to change the course of USA history for the better, across the board!!! And...if the Mississippi, African-American voters had any smarts, common sense, or desire for a fruitful, productive, successful life and destiny of freedom, liberty, equality, decent education....they all would be voting for Chris McDaniel!!! POTUS Obama could care less about them. He is more interested in his beloved Muslim Brotherhood!!!
Attention: “ALL” Mississippi Voters.....VOTE FOR CHRIS McDANIEL next Tuesday, June 24, 2014!!! defeat...”Democrat” Thad Cochran!!!
But Brett Favre (pronouned favour i think) and Haley Barbour (pronounced Bar Burr) both endorsed the freakin RINO! What’s wrong with you insubordinate Mississippians! Brett and Haley have spoken dag nab it! Now pay heed to your football and political leaders! And maybe you’ll get a shiny new pair of wranglers. Just like the ones Brett Favour wears in those cool commercials.
Cochran had zero chance when McDaniel forced the runoff, which makes you wonder about the desperation from the establishment.
Did they poll black democrats?
Isn’t Thad just how you say “sad” if you have a lisp?
Maybe I'm not talking to the typical GA voter in conversations within my little circle of political prognosticators, but based on what I hear I have to believe that a real dyed-in-the-wool conservative Republican would win by such a lopsided margin that the Dimwits wouldn't even bother to field a candidate next time around.
If the polls are correct, looks like Kingston will get the nod in July, and then will likely win in November. He’ll be an improvement over Chambliss, at least that’s the hope!
From your keyboard to God's ears.
