RE: FINDINGS FROM SURVEY OF MS 4 VOTERS
DATE: OCTOBER 20, 2010
The Tarrance Group is pleased to present Palazzo for Congress with the key findings from a survey of voters in the 4th Congressional District of Mississippi. Responses to this survey of N=300 registered "likely" voters were gathered October 18-19, 2010. The margin of error associated with a sample of this type of +/- 5.8%.
Icumbent Democrat Congressman Gene Taylor is in danger of defeat, as Republican challenger Steven Palazzo has pulled into the lead in the race for Congress. Among voters overall, Palazzo leads Taylor by +2 points, 43% to 41%. Another 3% support other candidates, and 12% of voters are undecided.
Palazzo holds a +8 lead among voters who know both candidates (48% to 40%), and he leads by +9 among voters who say they are "extremely" likely to vote in the election (49% to 40%).
Another advantage for Palazzo is the intensity advantage of his voters. While 81% of Palazzo voters are extremely interested in the upcoming election, only 55% of Taylor voters feel the same way.
Voters have made the decision that it is time for a change. Only 36% say Taylor deserves re-election, while 45% say it is time for a new person in office.
The political environment is a clear advantage for Palazzo, as Republicans hold a +9 point lead on the generic congressional ballot. While 47% say they are supporting the Republican candidate, only 38% support the Democrat.
Taylor is a very good man but he’s in the wrong damned party
If Taylor loses or even threatened, the Dimocrats are truly in trouble!
He’s not such a good man. He is as two-faced, arrogant and self-serving as any pol you likely meet.
Actually... he is not.
He’s a socialist also.
A guy named Palazzo beating a fairly conservative and popular Dem like Taylor in Mississippi? Dems are in trouble.
I remember going to Nashville about 11 years ago and found about 1 pizza place in town. It was on the edge of town that was sort of fancy area. SE part of town? I forget. They were pretty busy at lunch and they made a good pizza.
Steve Palazzo must be a good guy. Is he a veteran?
“Actually... he is not.”
Just another typical RAT ba*tard?
“If Taylor loses or even threatened, the Dimocrats are truly in trouble!”
Precisely. When I saw this headline, I went “Holy Crap!”, because if Taylor... a man more conservative than many Republicans... is in trouble, then the Democrats are in for a Republican wave of Biblical proportions, and the polls are underestimating just how much.
He will come closer to losing this time than ever before. Citizen Liberty / The 912 Project have been relentless in campaigning against Taylor.
Taylor has been confronted at every town hall type meeting for over two years. He can not and will not explain his vote to support Pelosi as speaker. The folks are wise to his voting record; no principled votes against socialism. He has held his vote to the end to ensure the bills past then voted against them so save his seat. He is a weasel.
well now that he’s been outted as a socialist and a rat bastard he doesn’t stand a chance of being reelected in a conservative district
good I’m not fond of socialist rat bastards
time for a change... no Dems allowed
He’s in the National Guard. :)
I watched his video. Looks like a good guy. Nice how he is tying Nancy Pelosi around Taylor’s neck. LOL!
Is the Biloxi green the area in front of the Biloxi Museum (rebuilt after Katrina?), across from one of the Casinos?
Palazzo is running an outstanding campaign. I’m sure it helps a great deal that Haley has taken the state GOP in hand. A lot of state parties would just write off a race like that.
He truly is.
I give you my word that he is one.
Mrs. GBC and I honeymooned at the Broadwater some 28 years ago. Visited the Jefferson Davis home. Ate at Mary Mahoney's. I know MM's is still there, but Biloxi just is not the same place.
The local GOP has been in the lead opposing Taylor and confronting him. Theron Furr is head of the Jackson County GOP. He is an honest, decent, intelligent guy. His leadership has done more to put Taylor in danger than anything Barbour has done.
Yea, that’s the one I was thinking of .. thanks.
That's why I had to leave.
Hard to believe but I’ll take it.
I met my wife (43 years and counting) while I was a "pinger" stationed at Keesler AFB.
We would regularly comment about the changes that happened over the years, whenever we came back to the Gulf Coast to visit with her relatives.
We retired down here back in 2002, and the changes just keep on coming.
The heat of summer is a little more than I like, but other than than that, I enjoy the area. Great folks hereabout.
Holy crap....most Rs even like this guy....IF he’s in trouble, then I can assure you we are going to be retaking the House and maybe the Senate.........
I was a bit surprised to see that the NRCC started spending money against Gene Taylor...so I guess this just confirms there is real movement in that race. Wow.
Taylor should have switched parties before this election year. It might have saved him.
Gene throughout his career has never missed an opportunity to criticize Republicans. The RNCC has basically conceded the district to him and he has run against “tomato cans”,
unsupported at all by the RNCC except for Mike Lott, who also was not supported by the RNCC. Which lead to Gene’s “legend” of being unbeatable”.
His party of Obama, the Czars, Pelosi, Reid, Barney Frank, etc. clashs with how MS votes.
the last 10 yrs or so....there are no good democrats....
I frequently vote for Taylor so I can say with a straight face I dont vote a straight GOP ticket. Guess Ill have to find a democrap dogcatcher to vote for if Taylor goes down. Wish hed join the GOP years ago.
His performance at his town hall meeting was so conservative and anti-Obama everyone there was begging him to change parties. I checked his voting record and from what I saw, he was pretty conservative. Although I do remember his repulsive questioning during the Waco hearings. What a punk.
Looks like the NRCC didn’t write it off this time around.
I don’t suppose that Bennie could be in any kind of difficulty?.....nah, not a snowball’s chance.....any conservatives still living in the 2nd?
If he were a Repub, he would be a RINO
