A poll of Tuesday’s Mississippi Senate runoff election released on Sunday shows incumbent Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) leading her Democrat challenger, former Clinton administration Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy, by ten points, 54 percent to 44 percent.

Respondents to the RRH Elections poll closely tracked those actual results. Forty-five percent of respondents said they voted for Espy on November 6, while 44 percent said they voted for Hyde-Smith, while 12 percent said they voted for McDaniel.
