Only 70 percent of S.C. GOP voters approve of Haley

Sep 20, 2011 9:48:00 AM - thestate.com
Nearly 70 of South Carolina’s Republicans and Republican-leaning voters approve of Gov. Nikki Haley’s performance.

But 23 percent say the first-term Lexington republican has failed to meet their expectations since taking office in January.

The results came from a new Winthrop University poll of 596 self-identified S.C. Republicans and independents who lean Republican. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.57 percent.

Haley’s 69.3 percent approval rating among Republicans is low, said Scott Huffmon, a Winthrop political scientist and the poll’s author.

“A popular Republican in office is going to have an approval rating in the 90th percentile,” Huffmon said.
