A new PPP poll shows Dem Elizabeth Colbert Busch leading former GOP Gov. Mark Sanford by nine points (50 to 41) in the upcoming special election to Congress from South Carolina’s First District.
PPP leans Dem, so this poll may show a wider lead than she really has, but even so, this is a conservative district that Mitt won by 18 points. A lead of any amount shows how much trouble Sanford is in with the election coming up on May 7.
I think the GOP figures they’ll get rid of Sanford now and Colbert Busch in 2014.
