MEMORANDUM

TO: PALAZZO FOR CONGRESS

FROM: ED GOEAS

NICHOLAS THOMPSON

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%.

KEY FINDINGS

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.

I would love to see Taylor sent packing. He is a weasel.

He’s not such a good man. He is as two-faced, arrogant and self-serving as any pol you likely meet.

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?

“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.

In 1988, Steven enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserves and was proud to serve with the 3rd Force Recon in the Persian Gulf War spending time in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. In 1997, Palazzo enlisted in the MS National Guard where he currently still serves. Most recently, Steven spent a year supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom at Mobilization Center Camp Shelby.

I'll try to be there on Monday.

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.

The town green in located on Hwy 90. If you head east through town, you can't miss it.

Biloxi, heavy sigh...

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, lots of changes over the years for sure.

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.

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.

I frequently vote for Taylor so I can say with a straight face I don’t vote a straight GOP ticket. Guess I’ll have to find a democrap dogcatcher to vote for if Taylor goes down. Wish he’d 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.

Bill Marcy for Congress endorsed by Sarah Palin. Poll numbers are not good, but Bill is a solid conservative. He could be setting himself up for 2012.

He voted his last 100 votes... 82% with nazi peloser. That is just a fact. He is notorious for waiting until the last minute to cast a vote for liberal bills and if they will pass without his vote... he votes against it. He has traded votes with other dims to keep up his appearance of conservatism. He is for wealth redistribution through a high death tax and he has stated himself, that the only way that poor blacks will ever reach financial parity with whites... is if the government takes from those that have and gives it to those that have not... “From each according his ability, to each according to his needs”. Sound familiar? He even pledged not to leave his wealth to his children. I could tell you other things but not in this place. He is a rat dim... a rodent... a pest that carries disease.
