New Polls: Harrison Tied with Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, Susan Collins Getting Crushed in Maine

At the beginning of Donald Trump’s presidency, Susan Collins and Lindsey Graham both stood in opposition. Graham said that if Trump became the President, it would destroy the Republican party. Collins was one of 3 Republicans that killed Trump’s attempt to abolish the Affordable Care Act.

But as time has gone by, both Senators have found themselves more than willing to support Trump. This is especially true of Graham. But new polling from Quinnipiac shows that both Graham and Collins may pay for their Trump support with their jobs.

Graham has served as a South Carolina senator since 2003. In ruby red South Carolina, he hasn’t faced much opposition at all. But this year, he will be facing a popular Democrat in Jaime Harrison.

According to a just released Quinnipiac poll, Graham and Harrison are tied at 48% each. This is in a state that Trump easily carried by nearly 15% in 2016. Quinnipiac’s 2020 poll shows that Trump’s lead over Joe Biden has shrunk to 6%.

Collins is in much worse trouble than Graham. Biden is crushing Trump by 21% in the state of Maine. And those results are affecting Collins as well. The Quinnipiac senate poll has the Republican incumbent trailing her Democratic opponent Sara Gideon by 12%.

Democrats have high hopes in taking back the senate in 2020. They are expecting to win in Maine, but don’t need South Carolina. A loss there by Graham would just be icing on the cake for Liberals.
