Strategists Trump won’t turn Mississippi blue

Although Trump technically edged Clinton 46% to 33%, the margin of error of 4-points makes it statistical dead heat. This has led some political observers wondering if our reddest states could turn blue this fall. According to Mississippi political insiders, it is unlikely. “I believe the polling in Mississippi is reflective the (Sen. Ted Cruz) votes, Anti-Trump votes and Hillary votes. Hayes Dent, a veteran Republican strategist and pollster in Mississippi, said that a lot of Cruz voters have answered polls in Mississippi indicating they would vote for Hillary rather than Trump. Prior to suspending his presidential campaign May 3, Ted Cruz of Texas enjoyed broad support from Mississippi conservatives, including Gov. Despite Trump winning the primary state election with 47 percent, Phil Bryant was supported by Mississippi conservatives, including Gov. Dent’s perspective is that this bizarre presidential cycle has produced equally absurd polls. Trump has broken almost every political convention, Dent stated. He has also taken a dig at Sen. John McCain, a war hero, but it hasn’t stopped his momentum. A Democratic strategist Brad Chism agrees that the Mason-Dixon poll showing Trump losing to Clinton in Mississippi will not play out on Election Day. Chism believes that Mississippi has the highest number of African Americans and is the most loyal Democratic constituency. However, Chism also believes that Mississippi will be flipped more than two other red Southern states. “Georgia will be able to tip over Mississippi. North Carolina will tip much more than Mississippi. Chism stated that Atlanta has an African American mayor, a strong Democratic populace, and is heavily involved in state politics. “In North Carolina you have urban centers and larger academic communities, where progressives — black and white, Asian, and Latino — are heavily involved in commerce and politics.” He said that Mississippi does not have the same urban white progressives, and lacks the political infrastructure. Here, we don’t have large urban areas. The white population isn’t as educated. While I don’t think you need to be smart to vote Democratic but the reality is that Democrats have a difficult time with non-college educated whites. As November approaches, Dent expects polls will show a return of normalcy. We’re still in unfamiliar waters. Dent said: “I have worked on every presidential election since 1980, and I have never seen one so out of control.”_x000D
