Cochran has far higher favorability 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 favorability ratings. Gov. Phil Bryant easily beats everyone in that category with 67 percent of those polled saying they view him strongly favorably or somewhat favorably, according to poll results supplied by the source.

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

That slightly less than President Barack Obama's approval, 44 percent.
