The Charleston Post & Courier reports:
South Carolina’s 2020 U.S. Senate race is neck-and-neck with just three months to go until Election Day, as Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison’s well-funded campaign appears to have significantly narrowed the gap against Republican incumbent Lindsey Graham, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
Graham led Harrison by just a single percentage point, 44 percent to 43 percent, in the poll conducted by data intelligence firm Morning Consult, well within the survey’s 3.5 percent margin of error.
Republican President Donald Trump, by comparison, holds a five-point lead in the historically red state over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, 49 percent to 44 percent — though Morning Consult’s tracking data shows Trump’s margin has shrunk from around 15 percent in early June.
Folks, 3 back-to-back-to-back polls out of South Carolina show Jaime Harrison is within striking distance of making history and defeating flip flopper Lindsey Graham!
🗣SOUTH CAROLINA IS A BATTLEGROUND STATE.
