Chism/Millsaps Poll: Cindy Up By Nine

A Chism Strategies/Millsaps College poll claims Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith leads challenger Mike Espy by nine points.  However, the poll said only 44% of voters approve of her job performance.  The poll also said affordable health care was the most important issue to those surveyed.  Some highlights of the poll are:

* "Of the surveyed voters, 44% approve of her job performance in the Senate while 36% disapprove. A full 19% of the Mississippi electorate neither approves or disapproves of her performance with the election ten months away. According to our findings at this early stage, Hyde-Smith holds a nine-point lead over likely Democratic challenger Mike Espy with nearly 20% of the electorate undecided, including 34% of Independents and 30% of Republican Leaners."

* 53% oppose President Trump's conviction and removal in his Impeachment trial while 42% favor removal.

* 50% think the state is heading in the wrong direction while 42% think it is heading in the right direction.

* Healthcare. Did someone say healthcare? The press release states:

56% favor adding some form of Medicare option to reduce the amount that families pay for their
health insurance. Among these voters, 33% back allowing Americans to choose between a public option or private health insurance, while 23% favor replacing the current health care system by expanding Medicare to cover all American citizens. 36% say they instead want to reduce existing regulations in the insurance markets.

* 46% of respondents are Republican, 31% are Democrats. 33% were black while 65% were white.

* 24% said most important issue for legislature was making healthcare more affordable while 21% said it was funding public schools.

* 60% favor Medicaid expansion buuuuuuuut..... check out the question:

12. Mississippi is one of 14 states that has not expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. States that have expanded Medicaid have seen increased insurance coverage for low-income, uninsured citizens and greater financial stability for rural and small-town hospitals. Would you support or oppose expanding Medicaid in Mississippi?

Not loaded at all.

* 45% said they were willing to pay higher taxes to fund roads and bridges improvements while 48% said they were opposed.

Good Lord! A poll designed and taken by Milsaps College is as worthless as one taken by Jackson State or at a card table inside Saltines in The Fondren.

Sorry to have misspelled Millsaps - But 89% of us link that misspelling to their irrelevance.

and there’s a 99 percent chance the poll is inaccurate...

44% approval is shockingly high.

Job performance? What precisely has she done, and what legislation has she sponsored?

I conducted a poll once and the results revealed that the Milsaps' polls are almost worse than a DNC poll.

Another crap sample by the non-pollster. Don't know why his "polling" clients don't demand that he get the sample right.

Espy loses again.

When blogs and other outlets post the results of these meaningless polls, it simply emboldens the fake pollsters and encourages more of the same. I'd be willing to bet if Millsaps sponsored or ran a poll asking about Jackson city government, 70% would respond that Baby Chock is doing a swell job.

Robot test shows image of a single traffic light and demands that I select all fire plugs.

Damn, if Minnie Pearl and Mike Espy are the best candidates we can field for a U.S. Senate seat, then I'd hate to see the worst. I say this every election cycle, but I may just have to sit this one out.

7:36... Cindy has already done more than Cochran. She's no RINO.

CHS has been a pleasant surprise. I was not too hot on her at first, but man she has been a great Senator. Screw Millsaps anyway... no way they poll accurately.

Shes is pretty much just a rubber stamp, place holder, it's not like there is some mystery how shes going to vote on issues, she is a party line follower like the rest of the bad policy gop establishment.

Oh, what blatant ignorance and bias you show, January 22, 2020 at 10:06 AM with your "Cindy has already done more than Cochran. She's no RINO" comment!

First of all, anyone who uses the term "RINO" is a bumbling, uneducated fool. I am a Republican. Senator Cochran was a Republican. You people are "in name only" and need to disassociate yourselves from OUR party.
No one could have accomplished anywhere near as much in a short term as Senator Cochran did through his many years of service! Further, with all due respect to Senator Hyde-Smith, she is simply not as experienced and capable. Senator Cochran left a great legacy and immeasurable accomplishments for the State of Mississippi.

And a trail of budget busting pork financed by ChiCom debt from one end of our state to the other.

Anybody notice how often Gallo has her on the radio all the way from DeeCee? As with many republicans in office, Supertalk gives her all the free air-time she wants.

She regurgitates the party narrative, talks about the weather in Washington, gives her opinion on impeachment and mentions a few things about 'the people's bidness'. Nothing of substance and nothing that makes me think she should be re-elected.

This week she's talked twice about being on board Air Force One with the president, how cool it was being able to talk to him and watch part of an NFL football game during the flight.

Hopefully someone other than Espy will surface.

Why don't the Repubs get someone decent and presentable enough to primary Minnie Pearl?

She has no freaking business in the U.S. Senate.

What about that guy who cut his 'stache hoping to get the OM Chancellor gig? But he'd have to give up twelve committee positions.

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.
