South Carolina Republicans like former Florida governor John E. Jeb Bush for president, while continuing to support Sen. Lindsey O. Graham for re-nomination against a host of conservative challengers.
Jeb Bush shows strength across many of the polls crosstabs and was the choice of 22 percent of the respondents compared to his 16 percent in our November poll, said Doug Kaplan, the president of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based polling company.
In the GOP Senate primary survey, Graham polled 60 percent against the field compared to his 54 percent in our November poll, he said. In the case that no candidate receives more than 50 percent in the June 10 primary, the two top vote getters run in a runoff primary.
Jackie Bodnar, a spokeswoman for Freedom Works said the field of challengers is still taking shape and shaking out. The filing deadline is not until the end of the month, and I think thats where youre going to see a lot of the grassroots start to unify around a single challenger. Unity is going to be key in taking on an entrenched Beltway operator like Lindsey Graham.
After Graham, respondents chose state Sen. Bright Lee, 10 percent; liberal operative Nancy R. Mace, 7 percent; Richard Cash, 4 percent and lawyer and Afghanistan War veteran Bill Connor, 2 percent.
These findings really stretch credulity, Bright said. Theres not a group of Republicans outside of the Senate dining room where Lindsey Graham is in the 60s.

liberal operative Nancy R. Mace, 7 percent
“liberal” operative??? What the hell is that? Makes no difference, the word “liberal” disqualifies her with me. I guess that’s why I’ve not heard anything about her here on FR.
A lot of conservatives don’t answer polls
If true, the people in South Carolina are freakin nuts. Jeb Bush has a LESS THAN ZERO percent chance of being elected president.
Poll the question “Who do you absoluteley NOT want?” and I think you’d find Jeb and Lindsey would lead those results, as well.
What’s in the water down there?
Well it seems everyone outside of South Carolina wants to get rid of Graham. Too bad it wasn’t a national primary.
There are a lot of NE transplants in SC now. The natives don’t like to hear that fact but it is true. They will be big supporters of a RINO like Grahamesty.
“liberal operative Nancy R. Mace, 7 percent”
WTF?? MCabe must be a lib op himself if he actually wrote this nonsense.

See guys? The only choice you have is a NWO shill. You can vote for Jeb or Hillary.
Man what a choice.
Of course this is all bullshit! Sorry, but sometimes those words are the only words to describe something.
The Gee Oh Pee elite will never stop trying to push Jeb or Crispy or any other so called moderate down our throats.
It’s name recognition.
