Graham is unlikely to lose re-election…
But being ahead by ONLY single digits has to have caught his and there attention in the state and Washington DC…
According to a poll Collective PAC commissioned from Change Research and obtained first by The State, [James] Harrison trails Graham by just 7 percentage points — a surprisingly slim margin given the demographics of a state that elected President Donald Trump by nearly 14 percentage points in 2016.
In an online poll, Change Research asked 809 likely South Carolina voters between September 17-21 how they would vote in a Graham-Harrison match-up in November 2020.
Asked the first time about the match up, likely general election voters said they favored Graham 50-43.
The poll goes on to paint an even rosier picture for Harrison’s camp.
Upon reading a biography and mission statement for each candidate — “Lindsey is running to support President Trump, secure our border, and protect our economy from Democrats who want to take us back to the days of Barack Obama” while “Jaime will work with anyone … because he knows that when your community needs help, character counts and party labels don’t matter” — those same voters picked Graham over Harrison at just a 2 percentage point spread, 49-47.
“In the midst of a changing South, this poll clearly shows that South Carolinians’ favorability towards Lindsey Graham has also changed,” said Quentin James, Collective PAC’s co-founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to support Jaime’s strong effort to be South Carolina’s next U.S. senator.”…..
If Lindsey Graham loses?
The the political ‘wind’s for the Democrats will have gained a majority in the US Senate….
South Carolina ALREADY has a Black US Senator….
He’s a Republican Tim Scott…
