(WTVA) - A poll released Tuesday indicates Mississippi may be poised to do something that hasn't happened since 1999 — elect a Democrat for governor.
The Mason-Dixon survey of 625 registered Mississippi voters revealed Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood holds a 44 percent to 39 percent advantage over Republican Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves in a one-on-one matchup.
The remaining 17 percent was undecided. The margin of error is plus or minus four percent.
Results from this survey taken April 12 to April 14 are similar to one taken in December.
This latest poll found Hood leads with women, blacks, those under the age of 50 and independents. Reeves has strong support among men and whites.
Hood and Reeves are expected to run for governor next year.
