Y'all Politics Poll: Voters Approve of Governor's Performance

A Y'all Politics poll reports Governor Tate Reeves' approval rating is 83%.  The Mississippi political website reported:

According to a new poll from Impact Management Group conducted for Y’all Politics, Mississippians approve of Governor Tate Reeves’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic by almost 83%.  Entering his 5th month on the job, voters seem to be coalescing around Reeves during the crisis.

The statewide poll of likely voters using live operators was conducted from May 4-7, 2020 gauging public opinion on a variety of topics, including how citizens view the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and the job performance of Governor Tate Reeves and President Donald Trump...

If the election for Mississippi’s U.S. Senate race were held today, Sen. Hyde-Smith would beat Democrat Mike Espy and Libertarian Jimmy Edwards easily, drawing over 58% while Espy polled at 31%. Edwards is claiming south of 3% with under 9% undecided...
 Mississippians were almost evenly spread when weighing the health versus economic threats caused by the pandemic, with 47% saying the greater risk was for physical health while 40% pointed to the economic hardship. Just under 43% said government leaders should consider health first while nearly 39% were focused on the economy first...

The naysayers and trolls on here can badmouth the governor, but the disasters that he has had to deal with in his first few months in office would cause them to cry like the little punks that they are if they were to be our governor.

He is doing a commendable job.

I was reluctant to say this, but after seeing the results in CA earlier this week... Trump in a blowout, GOP takes the House and Senate. Easily! Dems are corrupt draconians!

Where's the CL, Mississippi Yesteryear and JFP on this poll? Normally, when Brad Chism (Espy/Hood's pollster) teams up with Millsaps, they treat those polls like gospel.

Once the legislature pats themselves on the back and turns the paper pushing over to MDA, expect delays, expect a spreadsheet that will route back to the legislature to show who all has applied, legislature/MDA hierarchy bless list, more paper pushing with added infantile MDA staff questions and delays.

Not a Tate fan in any way, but the guy has done as good of a job as one could during all of this. Sure, there are a ton of armchair virologists that like to talk about how horrible he is, but none have said what they would do different. In a majority of our lifetimes, this is the first time many have seen a situation such as this. All the Karen's and internet heroes need to take a step back and realize its a lot of peoples first time with a global viral pandemic.

This poll is a bogus as the publication that paid for it. Look at the sample and you would think they were polling somewhere else. Under-sampled, blacks, moderates, younger people and other demographics unfavorable to the administration. More PR than polling. Credibility rating, zero. Thought, try weighting the numbers to reflect the demographics of Mississippi and you will find a more accurate picture. The publication that paid for it is the equivalent of the Fox Propaganda network in Ms. Must have had some extra TANF money to spend.

CHS has to be the least qualified Senator in the country. 54% favorable of a hard Trumper like her in Mississippi speaks volumes. It’s unfortunate this is the quality of candidate the MS GOP serves up for us.

@10:42 sort of like all those polls you treated as gospel that had Hillary winning in a landslide, and the ones that have Biden trouncing trump. Keep on hitting the pipe and believing cnn is a legitimate source of news.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
