Biden is preferred by 46 percent of likely S.C. Democratic primary voters, up 14 points from a month ago, according to a Post and Courier-Change Research Poll released Sunday.

Biden’s post-announcement bump in South Carolina is higher than in other parts of the country, pollsters said.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders sits second at 15 percent, with California Sen. Kamala Harris following at 10 percent. Their numbers have held steady in three S.C. polls taken since February.

The latest poll shows Biden leads the field among men and women and in all regions of the state. He also is tops among black voters, who account for close to two-thirds of Democratic primary voters in South Carolina.

His only weak spot is among younger voters ages 18-34. They prefer Sanders, whose progressive stances on health care and economic reform appeal to millennials.



Other poll numbers:

Pete Buttigieg — 8%

Elizabeth Warren — 8%

Cory Booker — 4%

Beto O’Rourke — 2%

Andrew Yang — 2%

Stacey Abrams — 1%

Amy Klobuchar — 1%

Marianne Williamson — 1%

Michael Bennet — 0%

Julián Castro — 0%

John Delaney — 0%

Tulsi Gabbard — 0%

Kirsten Gillibrand — 0%

John Hickenlooper — 0%

Jay Inslee — 0%

Tim Ryan — 0%

Eric Swalwell — 0%

6. BS can't even get AA and POC to attend a rally at a BLACK church in a MAJORITY BLACK city.

 

His rally in North Charleston, SC had so LITTLE ethnic diversity that it looked like he could have been somewhere Vermont. In fact, based on the statistics, the demographics at that rally was even whiter than Vermont.

It's obvious that the AA and POC community are rejecting BS and the BS campaign. BS just doesn't connect with that community. The BS message just isn't resonating.

All I'm saying is, with such a humiliating rejection by the AA and POC communities, and without their vote, BS doesn't stand a chance.

His only weak spot is among younger voters ages 18-34. They prefer Sanders, whose progressive stances on health care and economic reform appeal to millennials.
Too bad for BS that this particular age group is VERY unreliable on election day.
