I think Nikki Haley is a growing star in the GOP. She'll win this easily.

Also keep your eye on TEA party backed Tim Scott in SC's first district

I'm sorry, but Rasmussen's TIGHT likely voter screen, in a one-day poll, on a weekday, probably dinner hour, and Haley's not passing 50%? Not saying Sheheen (D) is gonna pull this out, but South Carolinia doesn't seem to be throwing a parade for Ms Haley either. And Sheheen seems like he can save his better than expected intro here for another Gov campaign, State AG or even Senate if it's a FL/AK-style 3-way against Graham next time around...

Yeah, that's a decent point I suppose. She really hasn't surged much since the primary. A couple things to keep in mind though. First, the primary was incredibly divisive, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the good ol' boys that she defeated still aren't ready to play nice. Second, the current Republican in office isn't exactly a shining light of virtue, maybe that's turning a few people (not many of course) off to her?

"the current Republican in office isn't exactly a shining light of virtue,"

I would say that's the more likely culprit.

This sample was composed of 47% Rep 26% Dem 27% Other it is pathetic that Nikki Haley under these circumstances cant pass 50%. Maybe the other 50% of South Carolina isn't so wild about Mama Grizzley

Sheheen is running 12 points ahead of Alvin Greene.
