New Poll: Haley leads, but Sheheen’s support more solid

Oct 12, 2010 11:56:00 PM - thestate.com

Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley holds a 9 percentage point lead over Democrat Vincent Sheheen three weeks ahead of Election Day, according to a poll conducted by Winthrop University.

But the poll shows Sheheen’s voters are more likely to stick with him and he is slightly stronger among independent voters.

“It’s a healthy lead and it’s tough to overcome in three weeks,” said Winthrop University political scientist Scott Huffmon, who drafted the poll, “But it’s not impossible.

“It’s probably closer than more people think.”
