Is there a more definitive political election polling category other than “SOLID REPUBLICAN”?
Incumbent GOP US Senator Jim DeMint holds a 63% to 19% lead over Democrat challenger Alvin Greene in the battle for the South Carolina US Senate seat. Actually the real question might be, how does Greene even get 19% of the vote? Alvin Greene, the surprise winner from out of no-where of the Democrat primary has many other issues other than name recognition and a popular incumbent Republican Senator facing him. Greene has also been indicted on two charges, including a felony charge of showing porn to a female teenage student.
Republican incumbent Jim DeMint remains far ahead of surprise Democratic nominee Alvin Greene in the U.S. Senate race in South Carolina.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds DeMint leading Green by a better than three-to-one margin, 63% to 19%. Eight percent (8%) prefer some other candidate, and 10% are undecided.
CNN Interview with Alvin Green … Yikes
Are they going to have debates in this race … that would almost be worth a pay per view event.
Even Jim Clyburn (SC – D), the number 3 ranking Democrat, House majority Whip, in the U.S. House of Representatives has stated that he will not support his party’s nominee for the U.S. Senate, Alvin Greene, when he goes into the voting booth Nov. 2, 2010. Clyburn represents the 6th congressional district of South Carolina, one of SC’s only majority-black district. It makes you wonder if Clyburn is not going to support Greene, just who is?
“No, I’m not going to vote for Mr. Greene,” Clyburn said in answer to reporters’ questions in Columbia. “Look, I have three daughters and a granddaughter. I think it would be an insult to them, if I did that.”
CNN mocks Alvin Greene and his bizarre campaign and rise from no where; however, maybe the liberal media might want to take a look at another angle rather than condemning Greene or calling him a plant … maybe the voters of SC were that disgusted with the other choices they were given. To the MSM I would say, you can mock Greene all you want, but what is worse and more deserving of mockery than Alvin Greene? The Democrats who lost to him in the primary.
Great sarcasm at Jumping in Pools with their commentary regarding the US South Carolina Senate race.
I think that the GOP and Jim DeMint can sleep easy, this general election was over before it began. We will wait until the ballots close in SC to call the race; however, trust me … one second after polls close with 1/10th of 1% of the vote in SM will call the race for the GOP and Jim DeMint
