Elizabeth Colbert-Busch Is For Real

Mitt Romney carried the South Carolina first congressional district by nearly 20 points last November … meaning it should be completely out of reach for a Democratic candidate this spring, right?

Right?

Wrong. According to a new survey of first district voters conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP), Democrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch is well-positioned to pull an upset win against either former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford or former Charleston County councilman Curtis Bostic.

Against Sanford, Colbert-Busch enjoys a narrow 47-45 percent edge. Against Bostic, it’s a 43-43 percent tie.

“The South Carolina special looks like a toss up,” PPP president Dean Debnam said. “The big question is how much Republicans will unify around their nominee after the runoff next week.”

These results are surprising … and bode well for Colbert-Busch. Given the extensive personal and political baggage both of her prospective rivals will carry into the May special election, her advisors have to be feeling very good about their current positioning.

Meanwhile the SCGOP is likely shitting bricks right about now …

Sanford and Bostic face off on April 2 in a GOP runoff election for the right to run against Colbert-Busch – a six-figure taxpayer-funded bureaucrat and sister of faux-conservative comedian Stephen Colbert. PPP found Sanford leading Bostic by a thirteen-point margin heading into the final week of that race – 53-40 percent. That’s a good number for Sanford, who received 37 percent of the vote in last week’s GOP primary race.

Of course the ex-governor – who plunged the state into months of soap opera scandal in 2009 – has a 58 percent unfavorable rating in the district, according to the poll. That’s a devastatingly high number. Meanwhile Bostic is viewed unfavorably by 42 percent of respondents – also a dangerously high mark.

PPP is a Democratic-leaning firm, but its numbers have been pretty solid in recent Palmetto State races. The firm surveyed 1,175 likely voters in the district from March 22-24. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percent. For GOP results, 648 likely Republican voters were surveyed – with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percent.

In addition to polling the first district on these upcoming races, the PPP survey also tested several other questions … including job approval ratings for S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley and U.S. President Barack Obama. We’ll have more info on those questions in a follow-up report …

At least she has a job. Ole Sanford’s experiment with the private sector had him running back to politics.

The polling says that now, but when Sanford creams Bostic, I fully expect all of the losers in the primary to back him. That’s going to have a small effect at least.

Meh. I still hope Sanford loses.

Hmm… Even if you disagree with the assault weapons ban and high capacity magazine restrictions (and I do), it is hard to argue they are unconstitutional. I’d rather not start a long-winded discussion on that, but suffice to say the previous law was never struck down.

>legalizing gay marriage

I missed the part of the Constitution that restricts marriages to certain terms. The founders must have put it near the part of the Constitution that banned slavery or the part that declared Christianity as the official religion of the USA.

Nope, that’s constitutional. :)

Gay marriage is coming wether you like it or not. Obamacare is here to stay. And ending Second Amendment rights can’t happen without a Constitutional Amendment.
So don’t worry; you’ll still be able to shoot an abortion provider and claim it was in defense of the unborn.

The people leaning towards Sanford will skew the results for Bostic and vice versa. Bostic beats Sanford in the “unfavorable” ratings by 16 points yet Sanford beats Bostic by 13 points among voters. Check if PPP does the poll again next Wednesday and whichever candidate (likely Sanford by a wide margin) wins the runoff will lead Busch by 5 to 10 points. When push comes to shove I don’t see Busch being within 10 points of the Republican on election day.

You are absolutely correct. No doubt the Colbert-Bush campaign was in shock and saw the reality of their eventual defeat on the night of the primary when almost 80% of the ballots cast were in the Republican Primary and Sanford himself defeated ECB by several thousand votes.She stands ZERO chance in SC1.

The others (in the GOP) will out-vote her. She’ll be powerless. Sanford is a fake and a liar…who gets everyone (colleagues) turned against him…so he is worthless-useless as a leader.

Colbert works and lives in the upstate. She rents a home in SC-1. Bostic will not file his financial disclosure form until after the election. His campaign opted for a 60 day extension citing complexities. A look at what Dick sees in Colbert is that Linda Ketner garnered 48% against Brown in 2008. 2008 is not 2013, 2014, or 2016. Sanford won Ravenals seat with 66%, the second closest margin a Democrat came within for the seat in the last 21 years. Sanford then won with 96% and 91% in 1996 and 1998 respectively.

Recap: Colbert lives and works in the upstate, rents a home in SC-1.
This is a special election runoff between Sanford and Bostic April 2.
Bostic will not file a financial disclosure, Sanford and Colbert did.
53793 votes were cast on March 19 by Republicans.
163,000 were cast for Ketner with Obama on the ticket in 2008.
Scott received 152,000 against Frasiers 67,000 votes cast in 2010.
Scott received 180,000 in 2012
103,000 were cast for Rose in 2012 with Obama on the ticket.

There is no way Colbert will get 100,000 votes May 3 or even 67,000. She must beat the 53,000 votes cast in the run off…in the month of May?…never happen. It really shows how ignorant Democrats on this blog are pushing to have these poll results reported as if the poll has any historical relevance. They see the world through their warped perceptions, cold hard facts need not apply.

How’s that Obama care working for you Democrats? Just another glaring example of thinking in platitudes, seeing with warped perceptions, and following blindly what your national socialist leadership puts out.

Your recap is useless information. Sanford was unopposed for all intents and purposes, in every election you mentioned. He was also not exposed then, for the douche bag we all now know he is. Special elections always have much lower turnout than regular elections, it all comes down to who is motivated to vote and is there sufficient campaign infrastructure to turn them out. ECB should have plenty of support to turn out her voters. Who the hell is going to be motivated to vote for Sanfraud?

PPP has a shitload better record of predicting elections than Karl Rove and Dick Morris. But please, keep on living in your alternative universe.

It’s going to be great watching Sanford on stage with ECB what with him trying to answer questions and taint tuck his hardon at the same time. Sanford would fuck a pile of rocks if he thought there was a snake in it.

Y’all seem to forget that 85% of the registered voters stayed home on 3/19. So if it is Sanford vs. Colbert Busch, I expect you’ll see a far more motivated crowd seeking to keep that lying sack of poop out of DC. I see Colbert Busch winning on 5/7, and by a decent margin.

She has my vote. I will be refreshing for a female to represent SC in Washington. Many of those dames add balance to what is otherwise a wild and crazy frat party where absolutely nothing gets done. I long for the days of Tip O’Neal and Robert Dole.

Thomas that was frankly STUPID if it is true. ‘far more motivated crowd’?
Go to the ECB Facebook and see em beggin for money. Not that it would have made ANY difference, they should have got their vote out in the primary to give supporters a reason to write a check. When you only get 20% of the vote in a primary, hard to believe anybody will give you a dime.

Republicans have finally put up candidates who are so outrageous that even SC voters are tending to vote against them. Are we finally waking up?
