GOVERNOR GAINS BIG WITH DEMOCRATS, SLIPS WITH GOP

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley‘s approval ratings have remained essentially unchanged in South Carolina in the aftermath of the Confederate flag saga.

Fifty-three percent of South Carolinians approve of the job she’s doing now compared to 51 percent back in February, according to the results of a new Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey.

What has changed?  Where Haley’s approval is coming from …

Haley has picked up broad swaths of support from Democrats and blacks in the wake of the flag debate, although her numbers are down among GOP voters.

Thirty-nine percent of Democratic voters now say they approve of Haley’s job performance – compared to 17 percent back in February.  Meanwhile Haley’s support among “Republicans” has dipped from 76 precent to 67 percent.

Of interest? Forty-nine percent of GOP voters surveyed by PPP said they believe the Confederate flag should still be flying from the S.C. State House grounds – while thirty-nine percent support Haley’s corporate-driven, insta-conversion on the issue.

Haley’s poll numbers tanked during her first year in office – but soared to their highest levels earlier this year.

PPP surveyed 1,115 South Carolina voters from September 3-6 via telephone and the internet.  The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percent.

She’s playing to Libertarian-Moderates like you. Her nosedive and repulsion-level should tell you a lot about how fucking stupid you look.

The FITSNews audience should LOVE her then. She is beginning to play to you and the media. And it’s why she is sinking fast as a credible leader.

Someone (Jeb Bush/Karl Rove/Jenny Sanford) is giving her bad advice. Her career will be all but over if she does not about-face.

If her goal is to ruin her future prospects, she should hire you to run her campaign. You’ll kill her chances faster than you killed your own blog.

You are correct.When she went ‘establishment RINO’ and forgot who elected her, she essentially ended any chance of the ‘base’ supporting her national political ambitions.

The Democrats and Bible Thumper can have her.

That is actually a large sample for a statewide poll. TV ratings nationwide are done with a smaller sample than that. If you understand Statistics, if done correctly, that sample size is indicative of the results in the whole population.

Sheriff Chastain of Laurens County claims to have done Nikki at a recent convention in Hilton Head.

I understand that certain members of Haley’s security staff have already been contacted on the down-low by the press. Reportedly, also at least a couple of other sheriffs that attended.

This “rumor” may be true. At least, Chastain can’t get around “putting the moves” on Nikki.

One report has it that the members of her security detail had to tell Chastain to stop hitting on her, and making suggestive remarks.

The history of infidelity and ethics violations should help with her bi-partisan appeal. And Hillary could learn a thing or two about how to say no to FOIA requests for private emails sent on State accounts.
