POLL: Rasmussen South Carolina Primary


A new Rasmussen Reports automated survey of likely primary voters in South Carolina (conducted 9/26 through 9/27) finds:

  • Among 567 Democrats, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (43% to 30%) in a statewide primary; Sen. John Edwards trails at 10%.
  • Among 863 Republicans, former Sen. Fred Thompson narrowly leads former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (20% to 24%) in a statewide primary; former Gov. Mitt Romney trails at 15%, Sen. John McCain at 11%.
  • All other candidates receive less than five percent each.

Edwards at 10% in South Carolina, the only state he won four years ago, is VERY bad news for him. That suggests that even a second in Iowa or NH won't help him win there this time.

hillary 43 Obama 30 Edwards 10 suggests that Edwards may as well put out of South Carolina. There is no sense wasting money there when he needs to bet every cent he's got, including the clothes on his back, on Iowa. Edwards has already pulled out of Nevada because of similar bad poll numbers. South Carolina needs to be next.
