Election 2010: South Carolina Governor
South Carolina Governor: Haley (R) 49%, Sheheen (D) 35%
Monday, August 02, 2010 Email to a Friend ShareThis.Advertisement
Republican Nikki Haley continues to hold a double-digit lead over Democratic State Senator Vincent Sheheen in South Carolina’s race for governor.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Haley with 49% support. Sheheen picks up 35% of the vote. Four percent (4%) like another candidate in the race, and 12% remain undecided.

Both candidates have less support this month than they did a month ago.

Haley, a state legislator, captures 82% of the GOP vote, while Sheheen earns just 68% of Democrats. Voters not affiliated with either party prefer the Republican by a 48% to 34% margin.

Only seven percent (7%) of voters in South Carolina describe the economy as good. Fifty-nine percent (59%) say it’s poor. Twenty-two percent (22%) believe the economy is getting better, but 47% say it’s getting worse.

Sheheen picks up 68% support from voters who say the economy is getting better. Haley gets identical support (68%) from those who believe it is getting worse.

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of voters in the state say the United States is in a recession.

Thirty-three percent (33%) rate their personal finances as good or excellent, but 20% say their finances are poor. Seventeen percent (17%) think their own finances are getting better, while 44% say they are worsening.

(Want a free daily e-mail update ? If it's in the news, it's in our polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

The survey of 500 Likely Voters in South Carolina was conducted on July 29, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Sixty-one percent (61%) of South Carolina voters favor repeal of the national health care bill, while 34% are opposed. This includes 52% who Strongly Favor repeal and 25% who Strongly Oppose it. This is even higher support for repeal than is found nationally.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters in the state favor passage of an immigration law like Arizona’s in South Carolina, similar to support nationally. Twenty percent (20%) oppose such a law.

By a two-to-one margin, South Carolina voters disagree with the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to challenge the Arizona law in federal court.

Sixty percent (60%) say a child born in this country to a mother who is an illegal immigrant should not automatically become a U.S. citizen, as is currently the law.

Twenty-eight percent (28%) of all voters in South Carolina now hold a Very Favorable opinion of Haley, down slightly from the previous survey. Twelve percent (12%) view her Very Unfavorably.

Sheheen is viewed Very Favorably by 24% and Very Unfavorably by 15%.

At this point in a campaign, Rasmussen Reports considers the number of people with a strong opinion more significant than the total favorable/unfavorable numbers.

Forty percent (40%) now approve of the job President Obama is doing, while 58% disapprove of his performance. This is higher disapproval than Obama earns nationally in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

Forty-six percent (46%) approve of Sanford’s job performance as governor, but 50% disapprove.

Lindsey Graham: Portrait Of A Principled Idiot

By J.J. Jackson Saturday, July 24, 2010

I really did not want to write a second article in a one month about Senator Lindsey Graham considering he is from South Carolina and I am from Pennsylvania. But I must. He is forcing my hand.

I have got to hand it to the Senator. He certainly is principled. Sitting in his seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Graham decided to vote in favor of moving the nomination of Elena Kagan, President Obama’s latest nominee to the United States Supreme Court, out of committee. Senator Graham says that elections have consequences and this is why he crossed over and voted with the Democrats. Thus, in his mind, he is saying that because President Obama is sitting in the White House The President should get his nominee.

But while being principled he is also an idiot. He is an idiot because he is ignoring the fact that he was also elected. And he was elected by a constituency that vehemently opposes another left wing radical being placed upon the Supreme Court. His excuse to vote for Kagan is nothing more than the ramblings of an ill mind that is looking for justification to do something he wants to do anyway. Because if he really believed what he said about the consequences of elections he would be telling Obama that his constituents elected him to stand in the way of the further leftward march of America.

But he is not doing this because he does not really believe in his own excuse.

Senator Graham even said that there were, “100 reasons,” for him to vote against this nominee. But he tosses those, “100 reasons,” out the window because he wants to further Kagan’s nomination and get her seated upon the Supreme Court. There is, to be blunt, no other reason for his action.

Most people would say if there is one reason for something with 100 reasons against doing that thing that the 100 reasons would outweigh the one and the action in question would not be taken. Not Senator Graham though.

Yes, Mr. Graham, elections do have consequences. You, for example, were elected to the United States Senate. The United States Senate is tasked with the role of advice and consent over the President’s judicial nominees. That role was given to the Senate to ensure that a President would not appoint unqualified persons to the bench. The scope of who these unqualified persons are ranges widely from a President’s own relatives with no judicial experience to someone who is mentally incompetent to a wacko who could not care less about the United States Constitution, upholding limited government and keeping the Congress and the President in check.

The election of Senator Graham to a role in the Senate where he is supposed to act as a check and a balance is apparently not a consequential event if we are to believe the Senator’s own words and compare them with his actions. To Senator Graham the only election that matters in this case is the election of President Obama. To me this seems very convenient for the Senator and very inconvenient for America. Does this now mean that Lindsey Graham will support any law in Congress that President Obama supports? After all, elections have consequences, right, Senator?

Saying you are being principled is one thing. But getting tied up in knots so as to only selectively apply the principles you claim to hold dear makes you a principled idiot. What Mr. Graham is showing is that even a fool can have the courage of his wrongly conceived convictions.

He is the truth. And it is a truth that needs to be impressed upon Senator Graham.

Elena Kagan was nominated by President Obama because he sees her as someone that will help further his goals. President Obama’s goals are to strip us further of our liberties, act in an extra constitutional manner and turn America into a land where top down government control is the norm of our existence. I know, I know, liberals protest at such a blunt portrayal of what they believe in. They will swear that such is not the case. But tell me honestly, has anything that they have done proven that my description is not accurate? No.

Ms. Kagan, once on the bench, will rule, repeatedly and often, to further these desires. And when she does, each and every time she does, there will be people clearly responsible for these rulings. First and foremost will be Ms. Kagan herself. Next on the list will be President Obama. Following him will be all the goofy Democrats in the Senate who would not know the Constitution if it was put in front of them with a big neon flashing sign saying, “Constitution,” and who will rubber stamped this nomination. But behind all these sorry souls will be none other than Senator Lindsey Graham. Behind Mr. Graham will be any other Republican that votes to confirm her in the full Senate such as Susan Collins and Dick Lugar who have both voiced support for this horrid candidate for the nation’s highest court.

And because of your role in this matter, Mr. Graham, you will be just as responsible for the destruction of this country as all the rest who were previously named. But you are too interested in being a principled idiot to care.

Help Stop the Government Takeover of the Internet.
Contact Congress Now!

Dear Fellow Conservative,
Let me get right to the point. We need your help!
The Obama Administration is moving full steam ahead with its plans to take over every sector of the U.S. economy. First it was the auto industry, then the health care, energy and financial sectors.
And now, the Obama Administration is advancing a plan for a government takeover of the Internet, too
That's right. On April 6th, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. made it clear that under current law the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has absolutely no legal authority to impose stifling and unnecessary regulations on the Internet. But instead of accepting the court's ruling, President Obama and his pals at the FCC announced recently that they are just going to ignore it.
Specifically, the administration's plan now is to quickly side step Congress and arbitrarily change the law so that they can regulate the Internet using arcane rules written in the 1930s for outdated telephone lines.
The FCC's announcement has already flooded the financial markets with uncertainty. And, if Obama's scheme to take over the Internet is successful, the result is sure to stifle Internet innovation, cost American jobs and bring to a halt the billions of dollars in private investment that American broadband companies are investing in high speed Internet networks.
Take Action Now. Urge Congress to
Stop the Government Takeover of the Internet
The folks at and other ultra-liberal organizations are euphemistically calling the regulations that will lead to a government takeover of the Internet "Net Neutrality."
Don't be fooled. "Net Neutrality" is anything but neutral. Indeed, it is an unnecessary solution in search of a major problem.
Specifically, Net Neutrality regulations, as proposed by President Obama's Federal Communications Commission, would virtually eliminate broadband companies' ability to manage their own networks, prevent web congestion and provide consumers with a safe, secure and reliable connection to the Internet.
As the editors of The Wall Street Journal recently wrote, "FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski did their dirty work this week by announcing that he plans to reclassify broadband lines so his agency can regulate them under rules that were written for Ma Bell in the 1930s. This means subjecting the Internet to new political supervision--from the federal government and 50 state public utility commissions. The goal is to put one more industry under Washington's political thumb."
Why make government bureaucrats in Washington the gatekeepers of one of the few bright spots of our nation's struggling economy - an Internet sector that continues to innovate, thrive, create jobs and provide enormous benefit for consumers?
Urge Congress to Stop the
Government Takeover of the Internet Now!
Proponents of so-called "Net Neutrality" believe that all Internet infrastructure and online content should constitute public property - owned, operated and regulated by the government.
And if the Obama Administration is successful in its efforts to commandeer the Internet's infrastructure, you better believe they will move to regulate Internet content next.
Perhaps that's why Representative Marsha Blackburn appropriately calls Net Neutrality, "The Fairness Doctrine for the Internet."
The failure of the Left on talk radio is well documented, so are they now turning to the Internet to solidify their political power and silence their critics - anyone who still believes in freedom and liberty?
Fortunately, there is still time to stand up for growth and innovation and oppose yet another government takeover.
But you must act now!
We at the Center for Individual Freedom have launched the "Stop Net Regulation" campaign to engage the American people to oppose the Obama Administration's government takeover of the Internet.
Please join the fight by writing Congress and contacting your elected officials in opposition to Net Neutrality today.
Take Action: Tell Congress to Stop the
Government Takeover of the Internet!
Yours in Freedom,
Jeffrey Mazzella
Center for Individual Freedom
P.S. Please help spread the word by forwarding this email to your friends and family members. Urge them to join you in the fight to stop the government takeover of the Internet.

What kind of B.S. is this that has been sent out in this sites name. Whoever is responsible isn't!! What I received was a list of all of our congressmen in SC and was told these peolple all vote for HR 3200. This is totally BOGUS!!! Three are Republicans and since only one RINO from California voted for the insanity, this is easily impossible. Check you facts AND presentation BEFORE sending!!

I just got a roto call from someone inviting me to a Medicare luncheon and I told her I didn't want to have anything to do with Obamacare and she hung up.

So I called my HMO and the woman told me, which I already knew, that Obummers' bill won't take effect until 2013 (since he's campaigning forever and hopes to win in 2012). She did tell me that my benefits increased and that I wouldn't have a monthly co-payment this year because they took funding from the war and gave it to Medicare. I still let her have an earful and let her know I couldn't wait for the fraud to be gone.

Give'um an ear full
