Poll: Lindsey Graham At 56 Percent

ALSO, PALMETTO VOTERS CONFUSED ABOUT PRIMARY DATE … Last week this website asked whether U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) would hit the fifty percent mark in his June 10 Republican primary election in South Carolina – i.e. the threshold he needs to reach in order to avoid a runoff election…


Last week this website asked whether U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) would hit the fifty percent mark in his June 10 Republican primary election in South Carolina – i.e. the threshold he needs to reach in order to avoid a runoff election with his closest GOP challenger on June 24.

According to a new survey paid for by a group called Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, the answer to that question is “yes.”

Graham is currently receiving 56 percent of the vote according to a poll conducted by the special interest group – easily outdistancing Upstate businessman Richard Cash (7 percent) S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (6 percent), Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace (5 percent), Columbia, S.C. pastor Det Bowers (4 percent) Afghan War veteran Bill Connor (1 percent) and Columbia, S.C. attorney Benjamin Dunn (1 percent).

“No challenger seems to be consolidating support to become the main Graham alternative – nor are the candidates collectively pulling enough support away from him to get him below 50 percent,” writes Emily Schultheis for Politico Pro.

Also of interest?

According to Schultheis “just 19 percent of those surveyed correctly named the date of the June 10 primary, and 58 percent didn’t even hazard a guess.”

Way to go, South Carolina …

For those of you keeping score at home, the “reddest state in America” – which boasts of its “conservative” GOP-heavy electorate – is poised to renominate the most liberal “Republican” in the entire U.S. Congress for another six-year term.

Go … figure …

I think the ‘R’ beside Graham’s name is buoying him.

Obama has so trashed the country…voters are scared to death of not putting an ‘R’ back, and incumbents are benefiting. McConnell got the same advantage, so did Sanford (who was seen as an Republican incumbent)….

We just have to Keep up the Pressure, if these establishment Rs get back in…

With absolute power, the Ds have destroyed the country…No one wants to take a chance on that…The GOP better be sure to be the anti-Obama…Anti-Liberal…
And w/ us calling and writing EVERYDAY— we can call the shots…

If that’s where we are…let’s do it. Obama, and a suffering America, as an alternative, is not acceptable.

Smirks May 27, 2014 at 10:44 am

voters are scared to death of not putting an ‘R’ back

So they choose to keep the shittiest ‘R’ they have in Congress rather than pick someone else? Great logic there. Couldn’t be that party-line voters in a blood red state can’t help themselves in picking the worst Republicans they see just because they’re incumbent!

Oh well. Big Tweedle Dee has already warped his alternate reality into accepting Graham’s reelection in quite the hilarious way. If even his delusional self can’t withstand this heaping dose of reality check, it really says something for those who still resist it.

GrandTango May 27, 2014 at 10:58 am

If you are a ridiculously leftist democrat, who is still praising Obama….and you’re attacking Graham…I think you make my point better than I can.

People are FAR FAR more scared of you and Obama, and the disaster you’ve perpetuated, than they are Graham…They are not going to chance more of you…

CorruptionInColumbia May 27, 2014 at 11:49 am

Who’s praising Obama? I surely am not. That said, the treasonous scumbags like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Boehner, who make a career out of licking Obama’s butt and handing him everything he asks for on a silver platter, are no better than he is. They are all selling this country down the river as quickly as they possibly can.

GrandTango May 27, 2014 at 12:19 pm

I did not say I’m voting for him. And maybe he won’t win the primary. I hope he does not. Dunn or Conner or Bower would be better…

That said: The difference between me and the Liberal-Tarian…I can take the hand I’m dealt, and attempt to make the best of it.
The people are electing the Senator, by majority. Who knows, maybe the Ds are crossing over to vote for Graham. He is their best bet…

I’m just saying, if we end up w/ him (as FITS is saying)…We still have an Evil and hideous, anti-American Dragon to Slay, named Obama…

Until we defeat Obama, No Progress can be made toward fixing this nation….

Rocky Rhoades May 27, 2014 at 12:50 pm

But Obama is in his second term and not running again. How can we defeat him now? That’s like trying to defeat the Seattle Seahawks after they already won the Super Bowl, got their rings and signed up for new Obamacare – which I must say Lindsey also has and seems quite happy with.

GrandTango May 27, 2014 at 12:59 pm

With a majority of Republicans in the Senate, like we have in the House…we can cripple Obama to a large degree…and send a message to voters we know they are suffering, and we know it is because of Obama…

That way: you garner support to get better numbers of Anti-Obama in Congress..and we finish the job w/ a Conservative in the White House in 2016..

Until we are ALL (or good majorities) in unity against Obama, and the total disaster the democrat party forced on us, we will not heal and/or thrive. That is the simple truth of it…

It would help if any of the candidates bothered to seriously differentiate themselves from anything other than the “true conservative” brand. What does that even mean at this point?

You like Jesus, traditional values, America, business, the family, the troops, and Reagan and dislike Big Government? Congrats, now get in line with all the others, including the guy you are really running against.

How about tackling the issues people have with Graham? The guy is a genuine Washington insider. Not the “them fats cats up in Washington” insider, but a “you don’t talk down to other people who tow the line” kind of insider. You know the toxic kind of insider who doesn’t care if our government spies on us, or if lobbyist run the mad house, or if the largest economic players can palm their losses off to the tax payer while getting whatever in they can off the tax payer’s dime.

I keep hearing “So and so has kids, so they care about our future, Lindsay c’ain’t say that”. Whatever. How about a candidate who doesn’t having kids because they can’t bare the thought of having a child born into a broken, irresponsible Republic that may not last another 30 years before it descends into total madness.

Rocky Rocker May 27, 2014 at 12:46 pm

Graham is at 56% because people know Lindsey. They know that his rhetoric in the Spring is just a cover story to appease the upstate RINO haters. We all know that Senator Graham stands for the things that are good for all of us including amnesty for illegal – undocumented immigrants, increased spending on the military (and maybe a new VA clinic in Charleston), increased efforts to combat global warming, the rights of gays to marry and expansion of Obamacare and the many benefits it brings to America. Lindsay Graham is a revered statesman and a wonderful Senator, and we should all be proud of his service to country and the poor and middle class of South Carolina. I can only hope after his re-election he can get some Fed cash to widen I-95 from end to end, and possibly some extra cash expanding Medicaid, like we all know Nikki wants to do.

Jackie Chiles May 27, 2014 at 1:11 pm


CorruptionInColumbia May 27, 2014 at 1:17 pm

Bullshit check:

Amnesty for illegals is not “good for all of us”.

The military has more than enough money for now. If we keep our noses out of every other country’s business for a while, current or smaller budgets will be quite adequate.

Lindsey has NOT been a proponent of the right of gays to marry. Like many a Republican politician around the country who was later discovered to be gay or at least “sexually ambiguous”, Lindsey has fought against gay marriage.
I suspect this has something to do with trying to “cover their tracks”.

Lindsey has proven himself to be an enemy of freedom and in particular freedoms supposedly guaranteed in the US Constitution by his support and sponsorship of bills like NDAA-2012, the Patriot Act, and other such rot.

“When President Obama’s NLRB and the big unions tried to shut down Boeing South Carolina’s plant, Lindsey Graham took them on,” the ad announcer says.

“When they tried to intimidate him with false charges and complaints, Lindsey pushed even harder, forcing the unions and the NLRB to back down,” Graham’s ad continues.

This statement suggests the unions and the NLRB dropped its lawsuit against Boeing, when Graham “pushed even harder.” That’s false. The union dropped its complaint after it struck a deal with Boeing to raise wages and expand production in the state of Washington.

the lawsuit was dropped because the machinists union struck a deal with Boeing, not because of political pressure from Graham or other lawmakers.

Bible Thumper May 27, 2014 at 5:51 pm

So. euwe max Who are you supporting in the primary? My guess is Mace.

euwe max May 27, 2014 at 7:33 pm

If you can do it, replace Graham with anyone – but make it *clear* it’s not because they are who you want.. .because they’re not running anyone you want… at least that way, the next time, the candidates will realize they can win if they promise what you want.

I don’t know, in SC how you could *possibly* get all those gimps, goofs and grifters to agree on a candidate.. since they’re not really too clear on their goals.

….but if you *could*…

THEN you can start replacing them for promising what makes sense and not delivering.

When you get to that stage, people who agree with you will at least know you will support them through the slime wars while they try to achieve your goals… and won’t run off down some rabbit trail chasing shiny objects.

South Carolina doesn’t have anyone running who has the balls to stand up to corruption. But if you throw Graham out on that clear directive, you might be able to slowly converge on the solution.

Doing the same thing you’ve been doing shouldn’t even be an option.

Uniting on core goals that serve their best interest isn’t exactly what SC is famous for, is it?

euwe max May 27, 2014 at 1:39 pm

“Some guy said this about me yesterday on the left: The only reason I cared about [Benghazi] was because I have six tea party opponents. Well, if that’s true, I’m the biggest scumbag in America,” Graham said in a Thursday interview on The Mike Gallagher Show. “I don’t think that’s true. I know it’s not true. It would be almost impossible for Lindsey Graham — given who I am and what I’ve been doing for the last 20 years — not to care about those in harm’s way, who get killed, and not go on to hold the administration accountable that lied about it.”

“The scumbags are the people in the White House who lied about this,” Graham added later.

Anyone But Grahamnesty May 28, 2014 at 12:12 am

Go for Graham’s jugular. He is easy to destroy. You can’t be nice about attacking him. You have to be lean, mean, and dirty. “Few US politicians have been as vocal in their support of bringing in Third World immigrants and displacing the Southern people in their own land as has Senator Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina Republican has worked with New York Democrat Chuck Schumer to push amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants currently in the United States. He has accepted an award from the National Council of La Raza, a radical Hispanic organisation which promotes an anti-White agenda.” … Most of the nation HATES HIM. Don’t think so? Why was he censured in South Carolina? Why does Mark Levin ( a following of 60 million Americans) despise him? Let me at him … He is UN-AMERICAN and deserves to be thrown in PRISON! God Damn You Graham. YOU ARE EVIL. I Hate you.

Charleston Billboard Sign May 28, 2014 at 12:20 am

While accepting the La Raza award Graham blasted his overwhelmingly White conservative constituents, telling the Hispanic crowd that those who opposed amnesty and Third World immigration are ‘bigots’ and that they should ‘shut up.’

Limbaughsaphatkhunt May 28, 2014 at 8:11 pm

Exactly. For all the game the SC GOP (T-baggers) talk in this state…even going so far as to censure him by the local party affiliates…they’ve produced exactly jack squat in the form of anyone who can beat him.

Doc3 June 2, 2014 at 9:57 pm

No that is just a plain stupid constituency.

Mike at the Beach June 2, 2014 at 10:07 pm

Perhaps, but an ass-whipping is an ass-whipping. Fifty-six percent in a two-way race is wholly unremarkable, but in a seven-way primary? Regardless of the excuse, that’s just a beat-down. Hell, if he breaks 50 and avoids a runoff, that’s still a kick in the sack (or skirt, in Mace’s case).

Doc3 June 2, 2014 at 10:15 pm

Let’s see how the results turn out. Hopefully the voters will not send Graham, the big government statist back to office. It is not a kick in the pants, it is inditement against marrying your first cousin.

Mike at the Beach June 2, 2014 at 10:27 pm

You appear to be getting all frothy about Graham, while I am simply talking about the competitive results of a race. I never said I was I was a big fan, but the campaign results speak for themselves. The primary challenger group is getting mauled (many of the wounds are self-inflicted, to be sure). Oh, and I’ll be the first to admit that we occasionally marry cousins here in good ol’ SC, but most of us on this site can spell indictment. Throwing stones is a dangerous sport…

Doc3 June 2, 2014 at 11:12 pm

Well excuse me. There are no campaign results. Those will come when the votes are counted. You are repeating hit points for Graham as if they are fact. We will see if a low turnout works for or against the limp wrested one. I sometimes post without my glasses, oh well.

Mike at the Beach June 2, 2014 at 11:26 pm

Glasses or not, you should note that in the initial post I clearly wrote that “if” Graham pulls off these numbers it would represent an ass-whipping. Of course it’s all theoretical at this point- that’s what we were discussing until you popped in all “angry and stuff” calling us inbreds. Relax.

Slartibartfast May 28, 2014 at 1:06 am

There is a very simple way to force Lindsey into a runoff: everybody vote for the GOP primary candidate of your choice. It doesn’t matter if your guy or gal doesn’t make it – your vote will dilute ANY vote Lindsey gets. Now, once Lindsey has a challenger, you’ll have to decide whether you want that person or Lindsey, but now, you know how to force the runoff.

snickering May 28, 2014 at 8:54 am

If Lindsay is ahead it’s because the voters hate the others more.
