Palmetto Voters Not Keen On Nikki Haley’s National Ambitions

POLL: ONLY 22 PERCENT BELIEVE SC GOVERNOR SHOULD BE VICE PRESIDENT

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley‘s public approval ratings in the Palmetto State remain strong in the aftermath of her corporate-driven, insta-conversion on the Confederate flag.

Of course there’s a big difference in where her support is coming from …

One thing most voters in South Carolina agree on, though?  That Haley should not be vice-president.

Only 22 percent of Palmetto State voters believe Haley should be the GOP vice presidential nominee – compared to 60 percent who think she should not, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey.

Among Democrats, 68 percent believe Haley shouldn’t be vice president – compared to 60 percent for independents and 52 percent for “Republicans.”

Obviously the opinion of South Carolina voters on Haley’s vice presidential viability doesn’t matter.  All that matters is whether the GOP presidential nominee wants her on the ticket or not.

Our view?  Haley would not survive the vetting.

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.
