Former Vice President Joe Biden has a sizable lead in the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary, according to results of Clemson University’s Palmetto Poll released Wednesday morning.
Biden received support from 35% of the poll’s respondents, said Clemson University political science professor Bruce Ransom. Tom Steyer was a distant second with 17%, and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was third with 13%. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, each had 8%. U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota had 4% and U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii had 2%.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Palmetto Poll, which Clemson has conducted since 1999, shows Biden with a larger lead in South Carolina than several other recent polls.
“We have great confidence that even though this is kind of out of step with some other polls, it is right in step with how people are going to vote here in South Carolina,” said retired Clemson University political science professor David Woodard.
“I don’t want us to beat our chest too much, but in the years that Bruce and I have been doing this, we’ve always called it right,” Woodard added.
