The Republican candidate for governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, has opened a wide lead over her Democratic opponent. Haley won a huge primary victory over multiple opponents despite all of the slander leveled against her. Her victory would make her the second Indian-American governor in American history. The poll is from Rasmussen, the most accurate national pollster.
Haley (R): 52% Sheheen (D): 36% Other/und: 12%
Up by 16%
Haley's numbers simply show that she's cruising towards an easy victory. Not only is she above 50% but Sheheen can't even break 40%. It would also appear that all of the accusations of misdoing have not stuck and Haley's former role in the administration of Governor Mark Sanford.
