Polls show both Cochran & McDaniel beating Childers

Although the 2014 Republican Primary contest for Senate is heating up between Sen. Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel, the Rassmussen Reports March 31st poll shows both decisively defeating the anticipated general election opponent, Democrat Travis Childers.  According to the poll, Cochran would win by 17 points while McDaniel would win by 12 points–either considered a comfortable margin of victory.

With incumbent Republicans fearing that a Tea Party victory in the primary election would set-up a possible loss of a Republican held seat in the general election (as happened to Sen. Dick Lugar (R-IN) in 2012), a 12-point lead for the McDaniel all but eliminates that as a concern for the June 3rd primary.
