A Winthrop Poll released today finds South Carolinians almost evenly divided on the performance of Governor Nikki Haley. In the new poll of adults surveyed between April 15 to 22, 37.3% of all respondents said they approved of the governor's performance, while 36.5% reacted negatively. Among Republicans and Independents who are registered voters and lean Republican, her approval rating is almost 60%, with one-in-five disapproving (20.2%).
The Winthrop Poll is an ongoing project of Winthrop University and is partially underwritten by the West Forum on Policy and Politics at the University. The poll's most recent examination of South Carolina attitudes is available here.
