Lindsey Graham Tied


From the Quinnipiac poll released yesterday:

The U.S. Senate race in South Carolina is a tie, with 44 percent of voters backing Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and 44 percent backing Democrat Jaime Harrison. Nine percent say they are undecided. Democrats back Harrison 94 – 3 percent, independents back Harrison 47 – 37 percent, and Republicans back Graham 89 – 5 percent.

Eighty-five percent of voters in South Carolina who name a candidate say their minds are made up, while 13 percent say they might change their minds.

“He has been a firebrand advocate for national defense and a leader of his party for 17 years – but has Lindsey Graham’s allegiance to the president put him in jeopardy? The numbers suggest his tenure on the Hill is in trouble,” added Malloy.

Voters have a mixed opinion of Senator Graham, with 41 percent saying they have a favorable opinion of him, while 45 percent say they have an unfavorable opinion of Graham. For Jaime Harrison, 38 percent have a favorable opinion, while 24 percent have an unfavorable opinion. Thirty-seven percent say they haven’t heard enough about him to form an opinion.
