Bill Marcy (R) vs. Bennie Thompson (D): Leaning Marcy's Way

One day before the elections, and just about a week after a second poll showed the Bill Marcy vs. Bennie Thompson in Mississippi's Second Congressional District as being a toss-up, political commentator Dick Morris says that the independent vote is heading in the direction of the GOP, in his words, "big time."


Conservatives are ready to vote Republican tomorrow to show their disapproval of the Obama administration and of the Democrat-controlled Congress.


The Democratic Party took over both houses of the U.S. Congress in the 2006 elections. They hung onto both and also took over the White House in the 2008 elections.


What a difference two years can make!


President George W. Bush may have "left us" with a $1T debt - considered astronomical in early 2009. But since Barack Obama took up residence in the White House, and aided by both houses being controlled by his political party, the national debt has been run up to, according to some estimates, $11T-$13T, and the Democrats want to let the Bush tax cuts lapse at the beginning of 2011.


We may very well see a Republican takeover of 100 House seats or more tomorrow, and many Senate seats and governorships across the nation. And in a district where most residents didn't think that they would ever see the day when Bennie Thompson could be defeated, since the district was unconstitutionally gerrymandered to favor him, Bill Marcy could very well end up by tomorrow night being the next congressman-elect for the district.

    Thank you for recognizing that our district was unconstitutionally gerymandered. Unfortunately, we are one of the poorest districts in the country. Bennie has done nothing to improve our plight.
