It's close to the racial divide.

The Republican Party in Mississippi is basically the White party, and the Democratic Party is basically the Black party in Mississippi. The racial divide in Mississippi politics creates some ugly politics -- corrupt machine-boss politics even in hick towns. It's simple politics, but incredibly bad politics.  

The solution to a corrupt or incompetent elected official is ordinarily to vote in someone from the other Party to replace him, but that is impossible when people automatically vote on race instead of integrity and competence.

Unlike such states as Virginia (which is no longer Southern), Florida (likewise), North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas (as much Western as Southern), and even Tennessee, Mississippi has few of the economic opportunities to attract well-educated Northerners to live there. There might be a few thousand in the suburbs that overflow from Memphis into Mississippi, but that's about it.  

There's nothing wrong with Mississippi politics that miscegenation won't solve. Maybe.

Beggars can't be choosers when it comes to states that rarely get polled, so I will have to take this one.
