Poll Shows Lindsey Graham With 6-Point Lead Over Opponent Despite Being Out-Fundraised


Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has a six-point lead over his Democratic opponent Jaime Harrison despite being largely out-fundraised, a poll released Tuesday shows.

Graham leads Harrison 48 percent to 42 percent in the race, according to a Morning Consult poll. The Cook Political Report changed its prediction Wednesday for Graham’s Senate race, moving it from “lean Republican” to a “toss-up.”

Graham, who is the Senate Judiciary Chairman, is in the middle of a Supreme Court nominee confirmation for President Donald Trump’s nominee Amy Coney Barrett and has continued to get out-fundraised by Harrison. The South Carolina Democrat made history, announcing Sunday that his campaign shattered a Senate record for third-quarter fundraising with a total of $57 million in the final full quarter.
