Action Figure Hits 20 Percent


For those of you who have wondered how the man calling for economic prosperity through action figures was doing in South Carolina, Rasmussen offers some insight:

Mystery man Alvin Greene has been the subject of more media coverage this election cycle than any other political candidate, but right now he trails incumbent Republican Jim DeMint by over 40 points in South Carolina’s U.S. Senate contest.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely South Carolina Voters finds DeMint earning 62% support, while Greene, his Democratic challenger, picks up 20% of the vote.

Put another way, South Carolina Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen is only 15 percentage points ahead of Greene.
