Graham’s sinking approval rating

Graham may be more vulnerable than we think. Now is the time to build on this sinking momentum. I've been contacting my family and friends using NumbersUSA's (fighting Gang of 8's amnesty bill) news and petitions to keep them informed.

The latest message from the organization has Graham suffering from his amnesty leadership. All the ads NumbersUSA have been running opposing the Gang of 8’s amnesty plan must be having an effect. Here is what they are saying:

"Since NumbersUSA began running TV and radio ads in February highlighting the amnesty leadership of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), his popularity among South Carolina voters has plummeted, according to a new Winthrop University poll.
Although he retains majority support among Republicans, his approval rating among them fell from 71.6% in February to 57.5% in April.
Graham has shrugged off questions when national journalists ask him about the effectiveness of NumbersUSA's educational campaign about the Senate Amnesty Bill, but the poll numbers suggest that he should take notice.
Graham's approval rating among all registered voters has fallen to 43.9%, according to the university poll. He is up for re-election in 2014. Two Republicans are threatening a challenge in the primary next year: state Sen. Lee Bright and former congressional candidate Richard Cash."
