Winthrop Poll: SC Not Keen On Lindsey Graham’s Presidential Bid

TWO-THIRDS OF SC VOTERS, MAJORITY OF “REPUBLICANS” DON’T WANT GRAHAM TO RUN || By FITSNEWS ||  Two-thirds of registered voters in South Carolina – and 56.5 percent of “Republicans” – do not want U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham to run for president in 2016.  By contrast only 26 percent of voters…


|| By FITSNEWS ||  Two-thirds of registered voters in South Carolina – and 56.5 percent of “Republicans” – do not want U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham to run for president in 2016.  By contrast only 26 percent of voters – and 34 percent of “Republicans” – want Graham to seek the White House.

That’s according to the latest results of The Winthrop Poll, which has been gauging public opinion in the Palmetto State since 2006.

The survey found Graham’s approval rating as a U.S. Senator stood at 46.5 percent for all voters, and 60.3 percent for “Republicans” – although its clear those numbers would erode in the event he continues his Quixotic bid for the presidency.

Graham is currently drawing between 10-13 percent support in a hypothetical “First in the South” GOP presidential primary, according to recent polls, although he’s not even registering as a blip on the radar in early voting Iowa and New Hampshire.

With good reason …

Even as America swallows way too much war propaganda of late, Graham remains the angry outlier – a rabid militant whose perpetual (and routinely conflicted) support for American interventionism raises serious questions about his judgment.

Winthrop surveyed 1,109 residents in South Carolina by landline and cell phones between February 21 and March 1, 2015. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.

We’ll have more results from the poll soon …

Do you suppose Graham’s warmongering is just his way of blunting the fact he is gay? It truly is a shame in March, 2015, that a national politician of long-standing has to pretend he’s “just one of the boys.” Even young Republicans these days are accepting of a person’s sexual preference. Certainly Graham by now has proved that his preferences are of no harm to anyone and his wishes should be respected.

Your post is why the American people just want gays to get married and leave us the fuck alone.

Nobody has any respect for your abnormal lifestyle.They are just tired of the threats and protests that come from that perverted community.

Graham stands for defending America and defeating the terrorists. I doubt very seriously his sexual preference has anything to do with his patriotism.

On the other hand being a Muslim might influence your decision making in regards to defending America and fighting radical Islam.

Liberals, and their accomplices – like FITS- will go giddy for an alleged presidential nominee like Graham. Even if he has ABSOLUTELY NO Chance.

FITS wants the GOP defined as WEAKLY as it can be, while he cowers from the looming debacle named HILLARY…and the Democrat Party Nomination…

Democrats are in a TOTAL MESS…partly because Obama’s Hate toward Israel and warmth toward brutal Terrorist MURDERERS…

But the economy is a WRECK and Obama wants to raise TAXES, by executive order, while illegals take the few jobs that invested Americans desperately NEED…
Liberalism has become like the Communist Party of the USSR of the late 1980s …and FITS is S#!tting all over himself in fear of that reality…

That’s why he’s talking about Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush…he sees the writing on the wall…and his @$$ is doomed…unless the GOP implodes again, like it did w/ FITS-favorite McCain …or Jeb Bush….

Thank you, captain obvious. We know these things (regarding Obama and the economy) and you repeat them with a post on every story (regardless of the content of the story). You don’t have to repeat it every single time. In all seriousness, why don’t you just put this up on your blog and keep it at the top. It will save you a lot of time.

GrandTango March 4, 2015 at 10:25 am

Why do you post all the time…but you never really say anything?…

You try to insult me, but there is never any pertinent substance to your words…other than acknowledging that you don’t like me, and what I stand for…

If you cannot connect your emotions and sentiment to the topic, even minimally, it tells me you’re a pretty ignorant and weak-minded Mother-F*#ker…Are you so proud of that, that you want to just want keep re-enforcing that embarrassing image of yourself…???…You seem to try so hard, just to further humiliate yourself…

I think that guy who says you are a liberal troll pretending to conservative is right, you are pretty good at covering it up though.

That has been my point all along. He claims to hate liberals, but every time he responds to me and others he uses all kinds of tired and worn out liberal slogans and clichés. Not to mention liberal tactics of shouting down their opposition with ad hominem attacks. He’s either a liberal plant trying to make conservatives look bad, or he’s self-loathing liberal.

GrandTango March 4, 2015 at 10:56 am

Idiots usually only fool fellow idiots…so I understand your sentiment…LMAO…

euwe max March 4, 2015 at 11:58 am

After reading just *one* of your LMAO messages, who do you think would seriously consider anything you write – ever again?

Gotta the silence from you on my previous challenge. But hey, I’ll take it. It’s far better than your profane and deranged tirades that I so often have to be subjected to for telling the truth. Although I do feel like I’m setting you up for one just typing this. Flame away, brutha.

This coming on the heels of you trying to excoriate me for insulting you and doing so because I’m ” ignorant and weak-minded”. You never fail to traffic in irony.

Try To Keep Up March 4, 2015 at 10:39 am

See, there you go again. You just can’t stop. You NEVER address the point. EVER. You constantly circumvent and use shallow arguments. I call you out for it ever single time, detailing everything. Then, predictably, you resort to attacks in your responses and brining up red herrings that have no bearing on the conversation. You then accuse me every time of being or doing exactly what YOU ARE or what YOU DO. You “insult me” and “there is never any pertinent substance to your words”. I can’t possibly not like “what you stand for” because you don’t stand for anything except for child ad hominem attacks and liberal clichés.

I don’t need to “connect” my “emotions and sentiment to the topic”, because those things have nothing do with anything. It’s just another one of your straw-men that shows just how “weak-minded” that YOU are. I ask you every time to defend what you say when I call you out for your liberal tactics and contradictory logic. EVERY TIME you change the subject and go on the attack without facts like liberals typically do. Do you “just want keep re-enforcing that embarrassing image of yourself…???” Seriously, answer that question. Don’t make up more klap-trap and spit out things that don’t have any bearing. Do you hate truth that much that you can’t factually stand up for yourself? Or are you so shallow that you will do the same thing again in response to this?
Just address one thing that I’ve brought up to you. We’ll just start with one. Do you think Germone Hopper is a better player than Pharoh Cooper?

Keep It At The Top March 4, 2015 at 10:32 am

All he has to do is make one post on his shit blog and it will stay at the top since he quit the journalistic failure of writing on it.

If Graham is the best candidate the GOP can put forward to run as POTUS, I may just stay at home. I suppose we could do worse, but no one comes to mind.
