Graham win likely despite polls

Graham win likely despite polls

There are 7 comments on the The State story from Nov 3, 2007, titled Graham win likely despite polls. In it, The State reports that:

“So many people waffle whenever the going gets tough. And that man, you know he's like everybody else, he has his days. But, his overall record, he's always been there for the people.”

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham could be vulnerable to a strong Republican challenger in 2008.

But the Seneca Republican has 4 million reasons to be optimistic.

Make that 4 million and one.

A bare majority of likely Republican voters -- 50.8 percent -- approve of Graham's job performance, a new poll by Winthrop University and ETV found.

But the first-term senator's $4 million campaign war chest and the absence of a strong GOP opponent -- with name recognition and money -- bolster Graham's 2008 re-election chances. Read more

Lindsey Graham was my congressman when I lived in Charleston. He helped me with a serious problem when and I am still deeply grateful for that. I could not have been more proud of him had he been a member of my own family during the Clinton Impeachment trials and I was pleased to see him elevated to the Senate.

However all of that was destroyed with his efforts to pass amnesty for illegal aliens this past summer, and his cocky manner about it. I will never trust him again. I know he has backed up and waffled on the issue. This means he could easily back up and waffle again.

In the meantime I urge every voter in South Caroline to pin him down on a position on the Law of the Sea Treaty that is about to come to the Senate Floor for a vote. This measure must be defeated. Take time to read up on it and demand a NAY vote from LG.

I'll never vote for his second term as a Senator.

He's shown his true self these past years. Nothing but 110% supportive of Bush in anything and everything.

Graham is another swine who needs to be tossed out.

If you think Graham listens to voters, you are mistaken. He might reply to an email or even chat briefly with you on the phone, but he supports what he wants to - REGARDLESS of what those he suppose to represent want. And that's unconstitutional! He's a worhtless sleezeball. And this dual office holding by him is being swept under the rug.

KICK THE BUSH SUPPORTER TO THE CURB. ANYONE THAT VOTES FOR GAY GRAHAM IS AN IDIOT.

I have had it with the current Bush party and it's lack of caring what the American people think. Senator Graham is nothing more than "Lil George'. He defies the will of the people of South Carolina and has his on agenda. I get to use the one tool I have to stop this. MY VOTE!!

Graham is in his own world. He never really listens to voters. Says he does. But that's just another lie of his.

I hope a viable candidate will oppose Graham. In talks I have had with many friends we all agree that Graham must be replaced..He holds the seat that STROM THURMOND once held!!!!!!!!

L. Graham has demonstrated his mind set regarding his constituant's disgust with him. Whatever happened to "We, the people", namely those who elected him to represent them? Bushes lap dog. It would be s gross display of ignorance to elect him again!
