A new Winthrop Poll reveals good news for South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley but trouble for GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham.

The poll of 887 adults found that public opinion of Haley is improving, while the vie of Graham has fallen, The State newspaper reports.

About 44.1 percent of Palmetto State residents surveyed approve of Haley’s job performance. That figure is up 1.6 percentage points from February and 5.8 percentage points from a Winthrop poll last November.

Graham's approval rating dropped to 39.7 percent among South Carolina residents — down from 44.8 percent in April, according to the survey conducted Oct. 19-27.

Among Republicans, Haley's approval rating is 65.5 percent, down 3.5 percentage points from April but up 4 points from last November, The State said.

Meanwhile, GOP support for Graham fell to 45.2 percent, down 12.3 percentage points from April and 26.4 points from February.

Haley will likely face a rematch against state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, a Democrat. Graham is expected to face three announced challengers in the June Republican primary.
