World News – GB – Exclusive: Lindsey Graham’s national popularity crumbles as he fights for political future


Graham is challenged for his seat by Jamie Harrison, a 44-year-old former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is less popular than ever, according to a new exclusive poll for The Independent

M Graham, 65, faces a surprisingly difficult re-election battle and is locked in the fight to save his political life

His hopes of hanging on to a seat he has held since 2003 have not been helped by his enthusiastic support from Mr. Trump

More than a third of U.S. voters – 34% – say they have a worse view of him than four years ago, according to a new poll for The Independent, by JL Partners They spoke to 1,002 people between the October 26 and October 28

M Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, golfer buddy of M Trump and one of the most famous faces in Congress, is challenged for his seat by Jamie Harrison, a 44-year-old former South Carolina president Democratic Party

If he wins, South Carolina would become the first state in US history to have two black men sitting simultaneously in the US Senate Tim Scott, the other senator from South Carolina, is the only black Republican in the Senate

M Graham, a three-term senator with an $ 80 million war chest, currently has a six-point lead over M Harrison according to the most recent major poll, but at times throughout the race the polls have shown the two in dead heat

M Harrison has raised $ 57 million in the last full quarter of the campaign, shattering Senate fundraising records as his party seeks to wrest control of the chamber from Republicans

His loot was the largest single-quarter total of any candidate in U.S. Senate history, sinking the previous record set in 2018 when Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke topped $ 38 million in the third quarter of this year in his unsuccessful candidacy for the Senate

The seasoned politician was so concerned about his opponent that he decided to take to Fox News to make desperate appeals for donations to his campaign

Twice he was cut by the hosts, in the middle of his sentence – causing hilarity from his opponents

M Graham was even slammed by Tucker Carlson, the most watched man on Fox News, for apparently being the person who convinced Mr. Trump to talk to Bob Woodward about his bombshell book, Rage

Carlson said it was a very bad idea and then questioned Mr. Graham to the Republican Party and the President on his show

« Lindsey Graham is supposed to be a Republican, so why would he do something like that? » Carlson asked

« You should ask him, but keep in mind that Lindsey Graham has opposed, passionately opposed, to virtually every major political initiative formulated by Donald Trump in his first run, from the end of immigration illegal to withdraw from unnecessary wars , to maintaining law and order at home, Lindsey Graham was against all this more than many Democrats so maybe you already know the answer « 

M Graham, a staunch friend of the late Senator John McCain, fought against the brutal attacks by M Trump against his dead ally

During a debate against M Harrison, the senator was heavily criticized for saying black youth and immigrants can « go anywhere » in South Carolina, adding « you just have to be conservative, not liberal »

Over the weekend, he said during the election campaign that young women in the United States can accomplish anything they want if they are pro-life, embrace religion and follow a traditional family structure

He cited Justice Amy Coney Barrett as a role model during a speech at a campaign event in Conway, South Carolina

« She’s not just mean, smart, she’s insanely good She embraces her faith » I want every young woman to know that there is a place for you in America if you are pro-life, if you embrace your religion and follow the traditional family structure That you can go anywhere, young lady, ”he added
