Thu, 24 Jul 2014 22:00:00 GMT —
COLUMBIA (WACH) - South Carolina voters have a mixed feeling on the work two of the state's U.S. Senators are doing in the nationâ??s capital.
The Palmetto Politics Poll, commissioned by WACH Fox, shows that 48 percent of likely South Carolina voters surveyed approve of the job Senator Tim Scott is doing, while 44 percent of likely South Carolina voters disapprove of the job Senator Lindsey Graham is doing as a U.S. Senator.
However, according to our Palmetto Politics Poll Graham seems poised for a return to Washington.
In the field of four candidates Graham came out on top receiving 45 percent of likely South Carolina voters surveyed topping democrat Brad Hutto (33%), Thomas Ravenel (10%) and libertarian Victor Kocher (4%).
The first round of data from the poll released on Tuesday showed Governor Nikki Haley would win a second term in office.
On Wednesday the poll showed an overwhelming amount of South Carolina voters disapprove of the job state lawmakers are doing.
45 percent of likely South Carolina voters surveyed do not approve of the job the state legislature is doing, while only 22 percent approved of lawmakers' performance.
Palmetto Politics Poll data from 1,000 likely South Carolina voters shows Haley would once again edge democratic Senator Vincent Sheheen just like she did in 2010's history-making election.
The poll conducted by Voter Survey Service in conjunction with WACH, WCIV, WYFF and the Charleston Post and Courier.
