In a state that Republicans have won in each presidential election since 1980, the survey also indicates that President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are tied for first place.
Another recent survey released on Wednesday shows that the contest between South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham and Democrat Jaime Harrison is deadlocked.
According to a Quinnipiac University survey, Harrison and Graham are tied with 48 percent of likely voters. The two candidates are tied, according to a few recent public polls this month, as Graham faces the most challenging reelection campaign of his career.
Even though President Trump won South Carolina by a wide margin four years ago, the race between him and former Vice President Joe Biden is also quite close. The poll, which was taken before Tuesday’s presidential debate, shows that Trump has a 48 percent to 47 percent advantage over Biden.
Voters had a higher favorable opinion of Harrison than Graham: 48% do, compared to 35% who have a negative opinion of the Democrat. With 51% of voters having a negative opinion of Graham and 43% having a favorable opinion, Graham’s reputation is in reverse.
Despite Graham’s reputation as one of the better fundraisers among Republican senators running this year, Harrison, who has broken state fundraising records, is expected to vastly outspend Graham in the final weeks of the election.
The poll also revealed a fairly evenly divided Supreme Court, despite Republicans’ efforts to speedily confirm Trump’s candidate Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat after her passing. 49 percent of people think the election winner should fill the position, and 47 percent think Trump should do it before the vote. Graham is advancing the nomination in the coming weeks in his capacity as chair of the Judiciary Committee.
From September 23 to September 27, Quinnipiac polled 1,123 likely voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
