Biden holds lead in South Carolina ahead of primary
(Rock Hill, S.C.) -- As voters in New Hampshire prepare to vote in a primary election this week (Feb. 11) and the results of the troubled Iowa caucuses continue to be scrutinized, soon all eyes will turn to South Carolina and its "first in the South" primary Feb. 29. Dr. Scott Huffmon, director of the Winthrop University Poll, says former Vice President Joe Biden continues to hold a lead in South Carolina. Huffmon spoke to the Palmetto Report to discuss the Winthrop Poll and the upcoming primary. "So far, we’ve only done one and it has been a Democratic presidential primary poll. We’re hoping to do another in a few weeks, but South Carolina, unlike Iowa and New Hampshire, South Carolina has Joe Biden in the lead," said Huffmon. The most recent Winthrop Poll, released Oct. 1, showed Biden (37 percent) leading Mass. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (17 percent) and Vt. Sen. Bernie Sanders (8 percent) among likely S.C. Democratic voters.
