SC suggestions

Delaware won our 'vote on where we poll' last week and we're in the field there right now with results coming out starting Thursday. South Carolina was one of the losing options but with so much going on there right now I think we just have to do a survey, so that's what we're going to plan on for this weekend.

Much of the poll is devoted to next year's race for Governor but I think the most interesting thing will be looking at perceptions of Mark Sanford, Lindsey Graham, and Jim Demint. Because we likely won't poll SC again for a while and because the state is rarely polled in general I want to make sure we don't miss anything important. So I'm pasting what I have in mind below, and I'm open to suggestions of any important angles on these guys that we might be missing:

1) Do you approve or disapprove of Governor Mark Sanford’s job performance? If you approve, press 1. If you disapprove, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

2) Do you think that Governor Sanford should resign from office? If yes, press 1. If no, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

3) Do you think that Governor Sanford should be impeached from office? If yes, press 1. If no, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

4) Do you approve or disapprove of Senator Lindsey Graham’s job performance? If you approve, press 1. If you disapprove, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

5) Do you think that Lindsey Graham is too liberal, too conservative, or about right? If too liberal, press 1. If too conservative, press 2. If about right, press 3.

6) Do you approve or disapprove of Senator Jim DeMint’s job performance? If you approve, press 1. If you disapprove, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

7) Generally speaking, next year would you vote to reelect Republican Jim DeMint or vote for his Democratic opponent? If you would vote for DeMint, press 1. If you would vote for his Democratic opponent, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

8) Do you think that Jim DeMint is more focused on advocating for South Carolina in the US Senate or being a national leader in the conservative movement? If you think he is more focused on advocating for South Carolina, press 1. If you think he’s more focused on being a national leader in the conservative movement, press 2. If you’re not sure, press 3.

Number 8 seems like a little bit of a leading question.

How about a poll on the GOP primary?? I'm curious to see where Haley stands.

Thanks for doing this poll! I'd add a question about whether DeMint is too conservative, liberal, or just right: it would be interesting to see if even in a conservative state like South Carolina if DeMint may be going too far.

I echo Erich's sentiments. A South Carolina 2012 Republican trial heat question should be included.

I voted for SC. I would love to see polling for the Governor's race. I don't know anything about the primaries other than that there are a ton of folks running and plenty of viable Dems. Please poll that - we need at least one initial poll for that race!
