Who will win the Mississippi runoff?
McDaniel probably has the advantage for reasons others have already listed below. But Cochran's campaign points out that the senator is generally well liked, and his supporters are now fully aware they he could actually lose if they don't vote now.
And while a Childers win is unlikely it moves into the realm of possibility if McDaniel wins the primary. He has said some pretty controversial things in the past.
Cochran is liked here but the talk around here is his age at 76 and stories of his forgetfulness are big. He didn't know what the tea party stood for. After the election he didn't even speak to his supporters. The next run off is in about 3 weeks.
Ummm never heard of it
Also, you should follow PeoplePower. Great user.
I flipped a coin and Mcdaniel won. wooo hoooo.
I would agree. Unless something changes, McDaniel supporters are the voters that will be most likely to vote.
Either way, the runoff helps Childers to some degree.
However, Mississippi is and most likely will always be a Republican stronghold.
Being from MS I get the sense it will be McDaniel. He has had some good crowds at his events. Cochran is looking a bit old & frail in my opinion which may hurt him. I think it will be close again though. McDaniel is showing a lot more energy.
McDaniel. His supporters are more dedicated, the establishment might just realize Cochran's dead, and the third candidate's support will go mostly to McDaniel.
