Poll puts insurance challenger in good light, but expert says it’s flawed

Carried out by the Republic Group LLC on April 28, the poll shows that about 60 percent said they would “most likely” or “absolutely not” vote for such a candidate.

Brian Perry of Capstone Public Affairs, LLC said in an email that the Obamacare question is “loaded.”

“If you told Ole Miss Republicans that Archie Manning supported the expansion of Obamacare they might go buy cow bells,” Perry said.

It would have been fairer if the third question in the poll had preceded the Obamacare question, Perry said. The last question shows that Mosley outpolled Chaney, 383 to 340, in response to the question: “If the election for Mississippi Insurance Commissioner were held today, who would you most likely be supporting?”

Perry said that Chaney is “no shrinking violet,” and could strike back.
