Blue Mississippi? Democrats See Chance To Flip Governorship

  • Weak poll numbers have Democrats eyeing a potential governor seat in one of the country’s most conservative states, Mississippi, which hasn’t seen a blue executive in 19 years, according to polls.
  • Only 33% of Mississippians would vote to reelect Republican Governor Tate Reeves, while 57% would vote for his opponent, according to a Mississippi Today/Sienna College poll.
  • Although former President Donald Trump won the state by over 16 points in the 2020 election, Democrats are hopeful that Northern District Commissioner Brandon Presley can break the GOP’s stranglehold over the state.
