Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham is Going Down! (Mega-Update from the Grassroots)
Posted on 05/06/2014 10:16:15 AM PDT by cotton1706
Good morning, I'm here to give everybody an update on how the liberty movement is doing against Lindsey Graham in South Carolina.
Lindsey Graham needs over 50% of the vote to win since South Carolina is a runoff state. If he gets less than 50%, the top two vote-getters will then face off in a head to head election two weeks later. Now Winthrop released its April polling among South Carolina residents recently, and the majority of South Carolinians are still saying they're tired of Graham. 42.8% of all respondents approve of Graham and only 39.6% of registered voters approve of Graham. Multiple Republican Party County Chapters throughout the state have also censured Graham, including Graham's home county!
However outsiders are led to believe Lindsey Graham is coasting to victory. Many probably have seen a report making itself through the media outlets recently, talking about how Graham has successfully navigated through his challengers and is now going to win. This report was mysteriously published almost everywhere, including the front page of Yahoo! News. I have it on good authority that the article most likely got its legs from the Graham campaign. It was obviously fake to any grassroots supporter in South Carolina that may have read it. Considering Graham's approval ratings are suffering, he's being censured in many counties throughout the state, and that Graham isn't winning local straw polls.
BRIEF MOMENT IN HISTORY
In 2012, a large field of candidates ran against Establishment pick David Dewhurst for the Texas Senate seat; Texas was also a runoff state. Dewhurst was not able to get over 50% of the vote, he came up short with 45% of the vote. So who came in second? Ted Cruz with 34% of the vote. In the runoff Cruz easily defeated Dewhurst.

I thought he’s been doing that for years...............
I can say one thing. I predict extremely low turnout for this primary.
For whatever it’s worth.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
John McCain made sure that listeners knew on the Greta Van Sustern show on Fox cable last night, that Lindsey Graham was Trey Gowdy’s uncle.
I reckon thats a sign McCain knows that Graham is indeed in trouble.
Trey seems to have very little in common with his uncle politically.
My guess is Lindsey has been going down for a long time.
I hope he goes down in the republican primary too.
Oklahoma may end up with another Ted Cruz because of our runoff rule...
He’s Ted. Cruz.. just a shade darker. :)
OUCH! LOL! Do he and shep share anything?
What is the run-off threshold? Is it 50% like Texas or 40% line North Carolina?
I hope you're right. That will be very good news for the challengers who have more motivated voters. GOTV!
It is 50 percent.
But the latest polls even had Shannon leading
.. so we may not need a runoff after all....
Every family has the "crazy uncle!"
[ John McCain made sure that listeners knew on the Greta Van Sustern show on Fox cable last night, that Lindsey Graham was Trey Gowdys uncle. ]
Lindsey is Trey’s “Uncle fester” of an uncle ie. Festering Boil...
We can only hope that nasty RINO eats it!
Yes, well, Graham also served in the US Navy, but one wonders if he was a show not tell.
Tell me who to tell my son and fiancé to vote for...
He is a beautiful man lol!
With him in charge as Speaker of the House Oklahoma had some of its most Conservative sessions in its HISTORY
they cut taxes, ran off the illegals with a law TOUGHER than Arizona, they refunded the arts Baha! Lots of libs got their panties in a wad over that. They restricted abortions, they cut the budget.. they voted not to participate in obama are
They PASSED open carry....
I hope he gets it in the first round.
” John McCain made sure that listeners knew on the Greta Van Sustern show on Fox cable last night, that Lindsey Graham was Trey Gowdys uncle. “
That is gonna hurt Trey Gowdy more than it is gonna help Lindsey Grahm cracker...
I don’t believe Graham is his uncle.
“...John McCain made sure that listeners knew on the Greta Van Sustern show on Fox cable last night, that Lindsey Graham was Trey Gowdys uncle....”
RNC and Rove will bring millions of dollars to alter this game before it’s over.
“Tell me who to tell my son and fiancé to vote for...”
I would recommend Lee Bright. He’s at the top of the polls. But I’d encourage them to vote for whomever isn’t Graham (other than perhaps Det Bowers, who I read today supports Amnesty).
Hope you are right.....I like Shannon a lot!!
South Carolina I hope this is true ping.
I’m friends with him and he’s the real deal. :)
RE: Gun laws...........
Tell him he's got a lot of support among my family and friends!!
They’re trying to get past Fallin to try and do something like that I think ?
I sure will!
He’s been BUSY working his butt off to get his message out...
The longer the campaign goes the more people realize who Lankford is and when they find out Lankfords record they change their vote to TW immediately..
Rhett Butler would be proud.
|Twelve years ago this was elected
as our Senator from South Carolina...
Now it is time to
kiss the Fairey
h/t to martin_fierro for the fairey graphic
Low turnout is also good for the better candidates, because most citizens are not informed ...
Well who is?
Don’t hold your breath.
Proving once again that you can't choose your relatives.
Juan McLame is deeply saddened upon hearing the news.
