Conservative state senator Chris McDaniel has pulled ahead of interim senator Cindy Hyde-Smith in the four-way Mississippi U.S. Senate race. The top two vote-getters on Election Day head into a runoff on November 27.
While Democrat Mike Espy is destined for the runoff, Republican McDaniel and former Democrat Hyde-Smith are battling for second place.
A new Change Research poll released on the eve of Election Day shows McDaniel topping Hyde-Smith 28 percent to 27.
MS Senate (n=1003)
Mike Espy 40
Chris McDaniel 28
Cindy Hyde-Smith 27
Mike Espy will almost certainly advance to a runoff election. It's not clear who his opponent will be.

Cindy Hyde-Smith’s candidacy is in crisis mode following Hyde-Smith’s videotaped admission that she voted for a budget that funds Planned Parenthood, despite her stated pro-life credentials. The former Democrat also voted for Hillary Clinton, and pushed for a gun ban on the state fairgrounds.
BOMBSHELL: Cindy Hyde-Smith ADMITS she voted to fund Planned Parenthood.
Posted by Senator Chris McDaniel on Friday, November 2, 2018
Four public polls released thus far in Mississippi’s special election were funded exclusively by the Chamber of Commerce and outfits friendly to Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked appointed Senator, Cindy Hyde-Smith.
The net effect of this markedly biased polling is to promulgate the establishment’s preferred narrative that Cindy Hyde-Smith is leading conservative, America First candidate Chris McDaniel in the race for U.S. Senate to replace retired Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS).
A May 1-May 3 poll commissioned by the anti-American, open borders-pushing U.S. Chamber of Commerce shows Hyde-Smith and Democrat candidate Mike Espy leading 30 percent and 22 percent, respectively, to State Sen. Chris McDaniel’s 17 percent (R-Ellisville).
The Chamber poll claims that respondents report “hearing an equal number of campaign ads about both Hyde-Smith and McDaniel.
While the Chamber had spent $750,000 in ads on behalf of Cindy Hyde-Smith by this date, neither the McDaniel campaign nor any outside entities registered any expenditures for ads on behalf of McDaniel. McDaniel has yet to run a single ad in the race.
Triumph Campaigns, a firm owned by Mitch McConnell hatchet-man Justin Brassel (more on him later) performed an unweighted April 10-11 poll of the four-way race showing Hyde-Smith essentially tied with Espy at 33 percent, with McDaniel lagging behind at 12.8 percent.
A closer look at the Triumph/Y’all Politics poll shows that women were vastly oversampled to the benefit of Hyde-Smith. About 67 percent of respondents were female, and 33 percent were male.
Of the respondents, 44.6 percent were Republicans and 55.4 percent Democrats and Independents. Mississippi is a heavily red state, indicating that Democrats and Independents were vastly oversampled.
Additionally, the poll left only 14.9 percent of voters undecided, which is unlikely given that it was taken in April, a full six months before the election.
A more recent Triumph/Y’all Politics poll from July 30-July 31 shows Hyde-Smith leading the race by a wide margin, but is plagued by similar issues.
Again, the poll vastly oversampled Democrats and Independents. Only 40 percent of survey respondents were Republicans, while 60 percent of respondents identified as either Democrats or Independent voters. Remember that Mississippi is a deeply red state.
It also oversampled women heavily. Women comprised a full 60 percent of completed surveys, and men just under 40 percent of completed surveys.
It also showed less than 16 percent of likely voters undecided four months before the election. Triumph and Y’all Politics also claimed President Trump is “popular” with a 51 percent approval rating in Mississippi. That is a number far below where President Trump’s numbers likely stand in a deep red state.
Unsurprisingly, Triumph has a C+ rating for its polling services on FiveThirtyEight.
Espy, who was once indicted for receiving improper gifts, is the next great hope of Democrats and an opposition media desperate for another southern Democrat in the U.S. Senate. The Espy campaign commissioned a poll by The Mellman Group that surveyed 600 likely voters from August 1-August 7.
Mason-Dixon Polling completed a fifth survey between April 12 and April 14. This poll achieves similar results to the other polls by neglecting to poll the Pinebelt, McDaniel’s home turf, where he performed extremely well in 2014.
This series of Republican establishment and Democrat-funded polls are less than reliable. In fact, Triumph Campaigns and Y’all Politics have a dirty secret that they are purposefully hiding from the public.
Y’all Politics is well-known in Mississippi as a blog that shills for the Republican establishment. It’s owner and editor is Alan Lange, who is also co-founder and managing director of a company called MuniStrategies.
MuniStrategies is a “Community Development Entity (CDE) as recognized through the Department of Treasury to participate in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) financing and has been awarded $198 million in allocation authority,” according to its website.
Lange’s entire business – and therefore his own financial well-being – is predicated on multi-million dollar government subsidies that finance manufacturing plants and other industry in rural areas. If President Donald J. Trump’s agenda of lowering corporate taxes and ending globalist trade deals is fully implemented, thus spurring American manufacturing and industrial growth naturally without the help of government subsidies, Lange will go out of business. He has a vested interest in fighting Trump’s agenda.
Lange’s blog then purposefully commissions polls from Triumph, owned by Justin Brasell, who was swamp-dweller Mitch McConnell’s campaign manager from 2007-2008. He is currently the campaign manager for establishment hack Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), and works behind the scenes for Hyde-Smith, according to sources on the ground in Mississippi.
The mainstream press in Mississippi then reports on the biased polls, ignorant to the the fact that Lange and Brasell have a devious agenda.
Hyde-Smith is a former Democrat who has refused to voice her support for Trump’s agenda of building a Southern border wall. McDaniel has called on her to stand up to McConnell and the GOP establishment in support of the President, which she has not done.
“Cindy Hyde-Smith has been dead silent on this issue,” McDaniel said. “I’m calling on her today to stand on behalf of Mississippians; to push back against Mitch McConnell, to push back against the Chamber of Commerce, and to call for the immediate funding of a wall on the southern border.”
Hyde-Smith accepted a $250,000 campaign donation from Silicon Valley leftist billionaire and founder of Napster, Sean Parker, which she has refused to return. She was also a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential run, and lobbied for gun control during her tenure as Mississippi State Commissioner of Agriculture. She was a Democrat until 2011 when she switched parties to run for statewide office.
In terms of polling, it is clear that the fix is in to stop McDaniel. Mississippi overwhelmingly supported Trump in 2016, and McDaniel is the only America First, populist candidate in the Senate race.
This is another classic example of McConnell and his D.C. goons trying to derail the Trump train.
Big League Politics reached out to Geoffrey Pender of the Clarion Ledger, author of the Chamber of Commerce and April Triumph/Y’all Politics reports to see if he had looked into the misrepresentation of polling numbers.
He did not return a request for comment.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
