A new poll conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy shows President Donald Trump and Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith holding comfortable leads heading into November. 

The poll, which surveyed 625 Mississippi voters across the state’s five regions, examined a potential Presidential race between President Trump and former VP Joe Biden or Senator Bernie Sanders and the Senate race between incumbent Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democratic challenger Mike Espy. 

Against Biden, the poll shows that President Trump holds a 56%-41% lead in the race with 3% of voters undecided.

As for the Senate race, Espy, a former Congressman, faces several primary opponents on March 10th. If he becomes the Democratic nominee for the seat, it will set up a rematch with Hyde-Smith, who won the race between the two in November 2018 following the retirement of the late-Senator Thad Cochran. 

The new poll projects that the incumbent Senator holds a 53%-43% lead over Espy with the remaining 4% undecided. 

According to Mason-Dixon, the margin for error in the poll is ± 4 percentage points. The poll was conducted from February 26-28th and registered voters were interviewed by phone.
