Cochran has far higher approval than McDaniel in poll

We’ve learned more about the Rasmussen polling in the Mississippi Senate race from an anonymous source.

Most interesting are the approval ratings. Gov. Phil Bryant easily beats everyone in that category with 67 percent of those polled saying they either strongly approved or somewhat approved of the governor, according to poll results supplied by the source.

Closest behind is Sen. Thad Cochran with a 60 percent combined approval. His opponent, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, has 43 percent who approve either strongly or somewhat.

That slightly less than President Barack Obama at 44 percent.
