The details…

  • While McCain has a solid 57% to 38% lead among men, Obama leads 49% to 44% among women.
  • Obama also dominates among the youngest set of voters (age 18-29), 75% to 22%. McCain holds the advantage in voters of all other age groups.
  • McCain attracts 84% of Republican voters in Mississippi and 54% of voters who are not affiliated with either party.Obama’s support in the Magnolia State comes from 78% of Democrats and 33% of unaffiliated voters.
  • McCain is viewed favorably by 58% of voters and unfavorably by 37% of voters. Obama’s numbers are 48% favorable, 51% unfavorable.

    “McCain Leads By 6 In Mississippi”

    But then again, we ARE talking about MississIppi here. I’m not surprised. This state is in another time continuum, one that perhaps only Texas surpasses. As these type of southerners would say, long live the Confederacy! Perhaps we should let Ol’ Miss and Texas secede and save the American gene pool.
