38% of Republican voters say Graham deserves reelection
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, reviled by conservatives for siding with President Obama on a range of key issues, has been censured by a considerable segment of the Republican Party in his own state. Now a poll conducted by Wenzel Strategies shows that Graham may be in serious danger of losing his seat.
Just 38% of GOP primary voters surveyed said that the liberal-leaning Republican deserves to be reelected. 49% said that it’s time for someone new.
In South Carolina, an incumbent needs the support of 50% of primary voters to avoid a runoff challenge. Wenzel’s numbers suggest that Graham will almost certainly have to face one. The poll shows that State Senator Lee Bright is Graham’s leading challenger.
