GOP panics after Graham challenger breaks fundraising record, and new poll shows 7-point gap

1 min read

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham may soon learn that his plan to convert himself into Trump’s bootlicker wasn’t such a hot idea after all. 

Although Graham is still currently the favorite to win in this safe Trump state, he is trending downward after several major embarrassments, with a historically low approval rating for an incumbent: 35%. Additionally, 58% said they want someone other than Graham representing them in the Senate. Although Graham remade himself into a sycophant, it has not helped him much as he tries to ride Trump’s coattails.

On the flip side, Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison has been steadily rising in the polls, with the latest national poll. commissioned from Change Research, indicating that Harrison only trails Graham by seven points. 

Ouch.
