Did you poll Gene Taylor too?Not for governor.


Did you poll Gene Taylor too?Phil: MS is very polarized. Generally, only 10% of the states white population ever votes for Democrats on statewide/presidential level.

Dustin Ingalls

Why is the party in such bad shape even with the partys own voters?The white Dems are pretty conservative. This is the case in a lot of Southern states, including our own NC. Though the MS Dems are oddly giving Obama much better marks against the GOP presidential contenders, even Huckabee and Barbour. So the fact DuPree, who is black like Obama, does worse than Luckett cant be completely racial. Obamas still losing a lot of Democrats, but half as many as the Dem gubernatorial candidates are against Bryant.


@ Phil. Im assuming that there is a big population of older Dixiecrats in Mississippi. These are people who registered Democrat in the days of the Solid South; however, as the Democrats have drifted leftward, they began to vote Republican, but never changed their party registration.


I tthough Haley Barbour was perhaps the most purely southern sounding name of a GOP pol, but then I saw Hudson Holliday.

Phil Perspective

Why is the party in such bad shape even with the partys own voters?


If anyone supports Hudson Holliday, you are making a BIG MISTAKE. In my dealings with him, he has a very hot temper and is very self-serving.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
