Clemson University Palmetto Poll - South Carolina: Clinton 19% -7, Obama 17% +1, Edwards 12% +2
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 04:16 PM by ariesgem
With less than two months to go before the crucial South Carolina presidential primary, the Clemson University Palmetto Poll finds that only about one-third of the likely voters in the Democratic and Republican primaries have a good idea about who they will vote for in the election next year.

Every candidate for president, in both political parties, has spent time in South Carolina, and several are now running television ads in anticipation of the January vote. The Clemson University Palmetto Poll was conducted between November 14th and November 27th, with four days off for the Thanksgiving holidays.

....................

Among the Democrats the top two candidates are all within the margin of error, with Hillary Clinton (19 percent) barely ahead of Barack Obama (17 percent), and John Edwards (12 percent) improving in the only primary state he won in 2004. In the two months since the last Palmetto Poll, Senator Clinton has watched her lead shrink by seven points and has dropped back to the rest of the field.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are in a statistical dead heat in the state, and much of the lead Senator Clinton had in August has evaporated. Over half the expected Democratic vote in 2008 will be in the African American community. As expected, Barack Obama is drawing heavily from this group, over three-quarters of his supporters are African-American. Senator Clinton is drawing over half her support from this cohort as well.
