   2012 Elections - Mississippi Presidential Race
Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Alabama and Mississippi primary results
The returns are still coming in, but at 10:35pm on primary night, Rick Santorum appears headed to victory in two key southern states, Alabama and Mississippi.  Even though front runner Mitt Romney has fallen to third place in both races, it is Newt Gingrich who stands to lose the most should the current results hold.  After winning South Carolina and Georgia - and nothing else - Gingrich's campaign faced must wins in the South tonight.  It looks like he won't be getting them.  And with Santorum leading, there will be added pressure for Newt to close up shop on this year's bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Mississippi primary election polls and predictions
Just like in neighboring Alabama, polls in the Magnolia State are scarce and recent - and promise a very close, very competitive race.  Only two have been conducted this year, both within the last week.
Mississippi Republican Primary Polls
  State Romney Santorum Gingrich Spread
  Public Policy (D) 31 27 33 Gingrich +2
  Rasmussen 35 27 27 Romney +8
Predictions?  How about another shot in the dark?
  • Mitt Romney - 33%
  • Newt Gingrich - 31%
  • Rick Santorum - 29%
  • Ron Paul - 7%
Delegates are awarded in Mississippi much the same as in Alabama.  Therefore, no candidate will enjoy a large delegate advantage here either.

Republican Presidential Nomination - upcoming battles
The first post-Super-Tuesday engagements in the continuing saga that is the 2012 Republican presidential nomination process will be this weekend.  On Saturday, four different caucuses are on tap.  Only one of them, Kansas, is "stateside."  The other three will be conducted in overseas territories of the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Northern Marianas and Guam.  Saturday's delegate counts are 40 for Kansas and 9 for each of the offshore elections.

The next primaries will be on Tuesday, March 13 when Alabama and Mississippi will hold their nomination contests.  Also on the schedule Tuesday are American Samoa and Hawaii They will hold nominating caucuses that day.  The delegate counts for Tuesday's elections are 50 for Alabama, 40 for Mississippi, 20 for Hawaii and 9 for American Samoa.

For more details on the GOP primary elections, see Election Projection's Republican Presidential Nomination page.

Mississippi 2012 Preview
The Deep South is where we head next on our "Tour of the 50 states."  A preview of Mississippi follows.

Reapportionment and Redistricting:  With no change in the size of Mississippi's House delegation necessitated by the 2010 census and both parties happy to consolidate their present seats, the 2012 version of Mississippi's congressional district map will probably look much like it has for the last decade.  Certainly any changes that do occur will have no affect on the partisan makeup of the Magnolia State's House membership.

President:  Reliably and deeply red in presidential elections, Mississippi has gone for the Republican nominee in every election since Ronald Reagan's first victory back in 1980.  Even southern Governor Bill Clinton failed to carry the state in either of his presidential races.  As a card-carrying member of the "Solid South," Mississippi won't disappoint this year's GOP pick.  It'll be a Solid GOP Hold.

Senate:  Republican Roger Wicker was appointed to the Senate following former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott's resignation in early 2008.  Later that year, he bested former Governor Ronnie Musgrove 54%-45% to earn the seat in his own right.  Because his election in 2008 was for the opportunity to serve out Lott's 6-year term, Wicker must run again in 2012.  His path to a first full term should be an easy Solid GOP Hold in this increasingly Republican state.

The Magnolia State's other senator, long-time veteran Thad Cochran (R), will be up for a seventh term in 2014.

Governor:  Former Republican Lt. Governor Phil Bryant won Mississippi's odd-year gubernatorial election in 2011 to earn a promotion to the Governor's Mansion.  His first re-election race will be held in 2015.

House:  There are four congressmen serving in the House of Representatives from the state of Mississippi.  After the 2012 election, odds are very strong that the same four will be headed back to Capitol Hill.  Nothing but safe seats can be found among the one Democratic and three Republican districts here.

You'll find a lot more useful information on the Mississippi state page.

Next stop:  Missouri
