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...
