Thad Cochran Fails to get 50 percent in Rasmussen Poll against Travis Childers

Mississippi Senate: Cochran (R) 48%, Childers (D) 31%

In a new Rasmussen Poll out today, Senator Thad Cochran failed to get at least 50 percent against Democrat Travis Chiders.  Despite a career spanning 42 years in Congress, and huge name recognition, Senator Cochran garnered only 48 percent against a man who lost his congressional seat as an incumbent in his own district by 17 points!

Despite the lies of Cochran’s supporters that Senator Chris McDaniel would most assuredly lose to Childers, Rasmussen states that both Republican candidates have a “solid lead” over the former Democratic Congressman.  Senator McDaniel is up on Childers by 12 points, 47 to 35.  Those numbers are remarkable for a state senator from Jones County against a former US Congressman.  And although Cochran’s people will likely point to the fact that McDaniel also failed to reach the 50 percent threshold, we again must point out that he is a state senator, not a longtime incumbent who has been in Washington since 1973 and has poured millions into the race.  These numbers can’t make the Cochran team happy.
