Once thought to be a sure bet for re-election, a new poll shows that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has seen his support fall among South Carolina, as his three primary challengers begin their campaigns against him.
The poll, conducted by Landmark Communications and Rosetta Stone Communications, shows Graham at 42%, Lee Bright with 13%, Nancy Mace taking 10%, and Richard Cash at 7%. And though he fares better in head-to-head matchups against his primary challengers, Graham is still under 50%.

WHO are these 42%??? Don’t have a CLUE what’s going on.
Ha! Below 50% already!! And it will surely fall from here. A runoff is coming, and Graham’s comeuppance is coming!
Very good chance, and he’ll lose a runoff. Oh, if only we can send him and Lamar packing.
Maybe Obama will appoint him to the Supreme Court.
Sad to say, the majority of Republican voters also fit the definition of Low Information Voter
its amazing how much support he still have to be honest
lots of dumb republicans in South Carolina
It’s good to see that Lee Bright is gaining ground.
Well, if he can’t get enough Republican support, all he has to do is switch sides. He is really there already. It’s just a name change.
A lot of the folks on “our” side would vote for a tree stump if it had an R after it.
If Linda loses primary, I expect him to run as “independent” ala Murkowski - even if just to help defeat the conservative GOP general nominee.
Linda is one nasty bitch...
Chealsey Manning gave him an idea.
Why does he have ANY support???
I can’t understand how Graham keeps getting reelected, the people of South Carolina are not dumb...or liberal.
LIV Syndrome is a bi-partisan problem to be sure. Watching FNC isn’t enough to be informed.
Under 50 percent for an incumbent is always bad news.
Graham is in trouble.
Not a chance. He’s just a useful RINO idiot. He becomes a mere idiot once voted out of office.
God do I want him out...but I see the 2012 GOP Presidential Primaries all over again. Three conservatives splitting the conservative vote; one RINO getting all the rest and with his name recognition he squeaks in.
I’m SICK of conservatives letting their egos and ambitions dooming us to RINO’s winning election after election. Two of these three need to drop out and soon.
Lee Bright is a new comer and he’s doing a great job at getting the word out.
I watch Fox less and One America News more.
re: If Linda loses primary, I expect him to run as independent
Yes, I think that is more likely. He can still side with the Democrats while taking money from RINO Republicans and most of his regular sources.
Unfortunately that is not always the case. See: Harry Reid, Claire McCaskill, Lisa Murkowski. Graham is well funded and his opponent would have to raise a ton of money, not necessarily as much, but somewhat close to Graham’s campaign stash. Plus never underestimate the RNC to demonize and undermine the true conservative candidate.
I don’t think you can support Graham and call yourself a Republican at the same time.
I don’t think he can run as an independent after losing toe GOP primary. Doesn’t SC have a “sore loser” law?
A “sore loser” law prohibits a defeated primary candidate from appearing on the general election ballot for another party. South Carolina is one of only eight states that permit electoral fusion. All but three states prohibit failed primary candidates from appearing on general election ballots.
That’s a BIG 10-4 good buddy!
Eroding, like the seashore,, blame it on global varming, yur Compadres all do, Sen. Grahamnesty
It should erode...the guy is a horse's ass who should never have been elected in the first place. He is an ineffective panty-waist who just gets pulled around by the nose by McCain and the lib bunch.
