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.
