The news is out: [Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill, is locked in a virtual tie with his Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison, according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.
The poll found the incumbent senator from South Carolina with a one-percentage-point lead in his quest for a fourth term, which is within the survey’s 4-point margin of error.
Graham campaign spokesman T.W. Arrighi downplayed the results of the poll, which was conducted from July 24 to Aug. 2 from among 741 likely voters. Arrighi told The Post and Courier that the poll “excludes the opinions of numerous voters” and said its findings “are far different than what our internal polling shows.” ]
