New SC Poll Numbers Coming



Winthrop University will release new South Carolina poll numbers this coming week, the school’s political science department announced Friday.

“With the recent 16-day partial federal government shutdown, what politicians rose and fell in South Carolinians’ eyes and who will be assigned blame?” a release from the school noted.

Winthrop’s results – including “approval ratings for President Obama and Congress” will be released on October 30.

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott and other Palmetto politicians will also get their latest report cards.

Haley’s approval rating stood at 43.5 percent in the last Winthrop Poll – released back in April. Graham’s approval rating in that survey was 44.8 percent. It’ll be interesting to see how those numbers have moved in the intervening months …

It will also be interesting to see whether South Carolinians followed the national trend in terms of assigning the majority of blame for the so-called “shutdown” on so-called “Republicans.”
