Finally RINO Lindsey Graham is feeling the heat. After some of his leftward follies and coming right on the heels of South Carolinian Republican s censure, voters are getting ready to kick his sorry butt to the curb!
From Commentary Magazine:
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s public support is collapsing in South Carolina — driven by a wholesale revolt among the GOP electorate and a steady erosion of his support amongst independents.
Already consistently loathed by a solid third of GOP voters, Graham’s recent leftward bent — including his co-authoring of a controversial “Cap & Tax” proposal supported by President Barack Obama and liberal Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) — has him locked in a “terminal free fall,” according one prominent Republican consultant.
“A chunk of the GOP has always detested him, but in the last month a damn has broken,” said the consultant, who was granted anonymity to discuss the impact of two recent polls that were conducted in South Carolina (one allegedly by Graham’s own advisors). “More Republicans now oppose Sen. Graham than support him. Independents are also deserting him in huge numbers.”
Sadly Graham does not come up for re-election until 2014. Commentary thinks that might give him time to recover. Methinks not. Thanks to Obama the conservative base has fundamentally changed. People in the base are activists now and are very wise to the RINO game. Something tells me that RINOs like Graham are going to be out of vogue with the electorate for a very long time to come.
