South Carolina: Is there hope?

Poll shows SC Gov. Nikki Haley with narrow lead over challenger

Haley campaign spokesman Rob Godfrey said the poll was a ploy for campaign donations for Sheheen.

The poll, run by a pro Democratic group, asked two questions as well as asking about the race for governor:

“Does Nikki Haley’s refusal to accept our tax dollars (to expand Medicaid) … give you major concerns, some concerns or no concerns at all about her?”

Almost two-thirds of those surveyed said they had “major” or “some” concerns.

“Do you believe the Republican Party has been given too much power and that has led to its elected representatives becoming increasingly corrupt?”   Public Policy Polling asked the S.C. voters.

After asking those loaded questions, the poll re-asked the voters surveyed which candidate they would choose for governor.

This time, Sheheen was favored by 48 percent to 45 percent for Haley.
