Two New Polls Show Graham Tanking

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s public support is collapsing in South Carolina – driven by a wholesale revolt among the GOP electorate and a steady erosion of his support amongst independents.

Already consistently loathed by a solid third of GOP voters, Graham’s recent leftward bent – including his co-authoring of a controversial “Cap & Tax” proposal supported by President Barack Obama and liberal Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) – has him locked in a “terminal free fall,” according one prominent Republican consultant.

“A chunk of the GOP has always detested him, but in the last month a dam has broken,” said the consultant, who was granted anonymity to discuss the impact of two recent polls that were conducted in South Carolina (one allegedly by Graham’s own advisors). “More Republicans now oppose Sen. Graham than support him. Independents are also deserting him in huge numbers.”

Even more troubling for Graham is there doesn’t seem to be a way out of the box. In fact, both polls reportedly showed that the more the national liberal establishment and local environmentalists rally to Graham’s defense, the worse things get for him.

That has sparked a heated debate within Graham’s camp as to how to best manage the situation.

“He needs positive messages desperately,” said a source familiar with the discussions. “But the only available messengers seem to be doing more harm than good.”......

I wonder, how long can Graham tread water?

Sounds like his campaign is sinking fast.

NEVER EVER ELECT A LAWYER FOR ANYTHING!

They have all the Judges, a majority of the congress and right now are Pres and VP... and you wonder why we have no Freedom and Liberty!
The Liberty a society retains is inversely proportional to the number of Lawyers in the Government.

Yeah, people like Judge Napolitano can't be trusted

There are many lawyers who love the Constitution and the principles it embodies. True, they aren't attracted to politics in big numbers, but they'd be a step in the right direction if you could get them to run.

Be careful about the word "never" -- we elect individuals, not groups.

IMissLiberty

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Amen!

Go through the biographies of U.S. senators. The vast majority have a law degree. There is nothing worse than an Ivy League lawyer.

oh great now he'll wind up a f'n JUDGE!

Shame on you in South Carolina for putting this puke in office again last year. Five more years and you will probably forvive and forget his past sins. I still can't believe you people can be that stupid. Must be the Myrtle Beach influence.

He has contempt for the people of South Carolina,

and no wonder. Whatever the outrage he gets re-elected. Smarten up South Carolina! I believe he has presidential ambitions and his model is John McCain.
McCain snuggled up to the MSM and got the Republican nomination. Lindsey is following in the footsteps of his hero.

Graham Cracker is crumbling!

“A chunk of the GOP has always detested him, but in the last month a dam has broken,”

That couldn't be because of him attacking Ron Paul about a month ago, now would it? You're already long gone Lindsay. Look out neocons!

hey lindsey

we told you so.
buh bye.
