South Carolina's 1st Congressional DistrictLatest 1st Congressional District Poll Numbers

By Paul Gable

Grand Strand Daily received exclusive access to the latest 1st Congressional District polling data from a poll commissioned by a private business group.

Former Gov. Mark Sanford leads with 17%, surprisingly down from the 25% reported several weeks ago. SC Sen. Larry Grooms is in a tight race for the runner-up position with 5% while Charleston school board member Elizabeth Moffly and teacher and prodigal son Teddy Turner are tied with 4% of the vote.

Maybe the most interesting part is 58% of the people polled are undecided with just a little over a month to go before primary polling March 19th.

We heard Grooms picked up some checks from the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce at a legislative event recently. Maybe he has agreed to support the I-73 push.

Maybe you heard Turner’s latest attempt at humor backfired. He is quoted in a Charleston paper as saying Sen. Tim Scott, the promoted former 1st District representative, ‘isn’t like us, he’s Black.’ Was this Turner’s ‘Richard Mourdock moment’ in the campaign?

Full poll numbers as reported:

Sanford 17%

Grooms 5%

Moffly 4%

Turner 4%

Bostic 2%

Colbert-Busch 2%

Blandford 1%

Kuhn 1%

Limehouse 1%

Hoffman > 1%

King > 1%

Larkin > 1%

Nash > 1%

Patrick > 1%

Pinkston > 1%

Rose > 1%

Undecided 58%
