The GarinHartYang Research Group completed a survey of Mississippi voters last week, and just recently shared their findings regarding this year's race for Attorney General and Governor.

The gubernatorial findings will follow in a second post, but here's what they found regarding Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood:

  • Hood's approval rating among Democrats is 70%
  • Hood's approval rating among independents is 64%

  • Only 20% of Mississippi voters say they would vote to elect a Republican as AG
  • Among Republican voters, 41% of them would vote for Hood, while only 36% would vote for a Republican
Hypothetical race against State Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-Ellisville)
  • Chris McDaniel has substantial name ID at 78%

No doubt Hood is popular but am suspicious about any poll that doesn't release the tabs. Cochran friendly pollsters had him walking all over McDaniel before June 3.
