The first two general election polls were released in the Charleston-anchored 1st District of South Carolina, and they couldn’t be more different. Last week, the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research firm for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (10/5-7; 475 SC-1 likely voters; 75 over-sample of African American voters; live interview) found freshman Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-Charleston) developing a large lead over state Rep. Nancy Mace (R-Daniel Island), 55-42%.
Yesterday, the Strategic National polling firm countered those numbers with a completely different take. According to their survey (10/14-16; 400 SC-1 likely voters), Ms. Mace has a two-point 47-45% slight edge over the freshman incumbent. This race is generally considered a toss-up.
