A right-leaning poll shows nearly half of likely S.C. voters favor re-electing U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

About 49 percent of 750 likely S.C. voters polled said they would vote for the Seneca Republican, who is seeking a third term in November.

Graham’s Democratic challenger, state Sen. Brad Hutto of Orangeburg, was favored by 30 percent of those polled. Ten percent said they would choose another candidate and 11 percent were undecided.

The poll was conducted July 9-10 by Rasmussen Reports. The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4 percentage points.
