Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is polling 3% support in South Carolina, where The State newspaper reported nearly four out of five Republicans in his home state want him to drop out of the 17-candidate race.
From The State:
A Public Policy Polling survey found Donald Trump would win 37 percent of the vote from S.C. Republicans and Ben Carson would pick up 21 percent. The rest of the crowded GOP field of 17 candidates was struggling in the single digits.
Trump dominated other GOP candidates in one-on-one match-ups — except for Carson. The soft-spoken, retired Maryland neurosurgeon edged the outspoken New York real-estate mogul and reality-TV star by 1 percentage point – a statistical tie.
Neither Trump nor Carson ever has held political office before. Another GOP political newcomer, former Hewlett Packard executive Carly Fiorina, was favored by 4 percent of S.C. GOP primary voters, Public Policy found. All told, 62 percent of S.C. Republican voters said they favored a newcomer — Trump, Carson or Fiorina.Further proof that the Republican Party is a complete and utter failure in the eyes of Republican voters.
Senators like Graham are phonier conservatives than Trump. The idea that the Iran deal does not need two-thirds approval of the Senate is cowardice by the Republican majority, which wants this deal.
Obamacare, still there.
Deficits, still there.
Funding of abortion clinics, still there.
Orange river, still there.
South Carolina Republicans want better -- and deserve better than this pack of liars and cowards.
