Rasmussen Finds Haley Running a Bit Stronger in General Election


Rasmussen has polled South Carolina’s GOP gubernatorial race and finds Nikki Haley running a bit better than Gresham Barrett, but not by a large margin. 

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Haley picking up 55% of the vote over Democratic State Senator Vincent Sheheen, who earns 34% support. Five percent (5%) would choose some other candidate and six percent (6%) are undecided.

Congressman Gresham Barrett earns 46% support over Sheheen’s 38%. However, 10% of voters would vote for some other candidate in this match-up and six percent (6%) are not sure.
