Rasmussen Reassures South Carolina, Pennsylvania Republicans Today

This morning, Rasmussen offers two results in gubernatorial races that will be unsurprising but reassuring to Republicans.

In South Carolina, the GOP’s Nikki Haley leads Democrat Vincent Sheheen, 49 percent to 35 percent. Maybe some of his supporters couldn’t answer the phone because they were lost in traffic.

In Pennsylvania, the poll results seem preserved in amber:

Little has changed in Pennsylvania’s race for governor, with Republican State Attorney General Tom Corbett earning 50% support this month against Democrat Dan Onorato. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Onorato, the chief executive of Allegheny County, picking up 39% of the vote.

Perhaps part of the problem is when voters see a candidate’s name and the first two syllables look like, “Oh, no!”
