Obama within six-points of McCain in South Carolina in new poll
In South Carolina, John McCains lead over Barack Obama is down to just six percentage points.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the race finds McCain leading Obama 51% to 45%. Eighty-four percent (84%) of Obama voters are voting with enthusiasm for him while just 9% are voting primarily against McCain. As for McCain supporters, just 63% are enthusiastic about their candidate while 34% are voting primarily against Obama (Premium Members can see full demographic crosstabs).

In June, shortly after Obama clinched the Democratic Presidential Nomination, McCain enjoyed a nine-point advantage in the Palmetto State.

McCain attracts 89% of Republican votes, up from 78% in June. Obama earns the vote from 88% of Democrats, up from 73% in June. Among unaffiliated voters, McCain has a ten-point lead, down from twenty points in the previous survey.

McCain is viewed favorably by 57% of South Carolinas likely voters while Obama earns positive reviews from 51%. Those figures reflect a three-point drop for McCain and a two-point gain for Obama.

3. I hate to say this but
This is unlikely to change much more. There is a lot of racism is S. Carolina.

4. Yeah, no point competing in SC.
We will win Ohio, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, Montana, and Indiana before we could win South Carolina. And if we won all those states mentioned above, we would have over 300 EV's easily.

5. Who knows, this could be a surprise flip
Even if it isn't flippable, hopefully it gets close enough where McCain has to spend money here that could have been used in the big swing states.

6. If on Nov. 4th Obama is trailing McCain
by only 6 points in South Carolina it will be a national landslide for Obama. In 2004 Bush beat Kerry in South Carolina by 17 percentage points.
