GOP RINOS hoping for a Mitch McConnell lackey, not available for comment.
This is what the conservatives have been waiting for, after knocking off Cantor, yet another RINO is in the cross hairs.
POLL: CHRIS MCDANIEL SHOOTS UP TO EIGHT-POINT LEAD OVER THAD COCHRAN
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.”
“Whether one looks at polling, history or the message of both campaigns, it is clear that Thad Cochran is running from behind and growing increasingly desperate,” Steusloff wrote.
Steusloff cites a recent report from Aaron Blake of the Washington Post that argues runoffs favor challengers over incumbents. “Runoffs from this year have been especially unkind to incumbents, with Texas Rep. Ralph Hall and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst easily defeated by their primary opponents,” Steusloff wrote. “The few instances of an incumbent defeating a challenger in a runoff have often come in situations where national groups rallied heavily behind the incumbent and the runoffs were over much longer periods of time than the three weeks between the primary and runoff elections in Mississippi.”
In an interview on Saturday at a campaign rally at Gander Mountain with Ron Paul here in Hattiesburg, McDaniel told Breitbart News his plan to win is to keep doing what he’s been doing.
