South Carolina Republican Governor Candidate Nikki Haley Takes the Lead

Oh those Sarah Palin endorsements mean NOTHING!  Yeah Right.  Nikki Haley gets a Big Bounce bypassing the other Three Establishment Candidates.  No Wonder why Congressman Gresham Barrett went to court to get some third party Haley Commercials removed

With South Carolina’s Republican Primary for Governor less than three weeks away, State Representative Nikki Haley, coming off a fresh endorsement by Sarah Palin, now leads the GOP pack.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary voters shows Haley earning 30% support. She’s followed by State Attorney General Henry McMaster who picks up 19% and Congressman Gresham Barrett with 17%. Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer captures 12% of the vote.

Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, but nearly one-in-five potential primary voters (18%) remain undecided.

The new findings mark a dramatic turn of events for Haley who ran fourth in March with just 12% support.r McMaster earned 21% of the vote at that time, with Bauer at 17% and Barrett at 14%.

McMaster has generally been viewed as the front-runner in the race for weeks.

Republicans will select their nominees in June 8 primary. If no candidate earns a majority of the votes, a runoff between the two top vote getters will be held two weeks later.
