Welcome to Wednesday’s edition of the “post,” our daily assemblage of the finest links the internet has to offer … or something like that.
In breaking news this afternoon, another Democratic polling firm has tested Gov. Nikki Haley’s approval rating. How’s she doing? Not bad …
According to the poll, 20 percent of registered voters think that Haley is doing an “excellent” job. Another 25 percent say she’s doing a “good” job. Sixteen percent rate her performance as “fair,” while 13 percent say she’s doing a “poor” job.
Twenty-five percent of voters are undecided.
The poll was conducted on Monday by Crantford and Associates, a Democratic polling firm based in Columbia, S.C. Its results generally jibe with the results of another Democratic poll released last week – although the undecided number for Haley was larger in that survey.
