Oh I like this kind of news.
Courtesy of Newsweek:
Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is statistically tied with Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, with the staunch pro-Trump incumbent seeing his favorability ratings plummet among independent voters.
Graham, who was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2002, is clinging to a 2-percentage point lead over Harrison, 47 to 45 percent, with nearly 10 percent of voters surveyed still remaining undecided about their 2020 vote. As the Change Research/Post and Courier newspaper poll notes, Graham performs poorly in hypothetical November election matchups as well as with voters who do not identify solely as Republicans. The statistical dead heat between Graham and Harrison, who has pulled in record fundraising in recent weeks, comes as the GOP senator has become one of President Donald Trump’s most outspoken supporters during the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
Trump won the traditionally-Republican state of South Carolina in the 2016 presidential election by a margin of nearly 15 percentage points over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
“[Senator Lindsey Graham] looks extremely vulnerable against Democratic contender Jaime Harrison,” the South Carolina pollsters noted among their key findings. “While South Carolina does not support impeaching President Trump, a majority of voters would like Senator Graham to approach the impeachment inquiry with an open mind, rather than leap to the president’s defense before hearing evidence.”
Look I am not going to get too excited about this, after all we have seen this happened before only to walk away disappointed on election day.
However anything is possible in politics, and I think that Jaime Harrison deserves support from all Democrats as he works to remove a cancerous cyst from the lymph nodes of our Democracy.
(How is that for descriptive phrasing?)
