Incumbent Republican senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham is neck and neck with his democratic challenger Jaime Harrison according to the latest CBS News/ You Gov poll released on Sunday.
The poll showed 45 percent of likely voters supporting Graham and 44 percent supporting Harrison.
As the chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, Graham will be the face of the Republicans effort to ram through a Supreme Court justice while voting has already begun. According to the poll, this does not seem to be affecting South Carolina voters that much since 45 percent say whether he votes to confirm Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court won’t affect how they vote this November.
In North Carolina, Democrat Cal Cunningham is leading Republican Sen. Thom Tillis by 10 points, 48–38 percent. Sen. David Perdue holds a 5 point lead over his Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff in Georgia, 47-42 percent.
