The short two-week Republican gubernatorial run-off cycle is already half over, and the first post-primary poll has just been released. The Trafalgar Group went into the field right after the June 12th primary (6/13-14; 1,000 GOP likely run-off voters) and found Gov. Henry McMaster opening up a commanding 60.1 – 36.2% margin over businessman John Warren. The pollsters included those respondents who are reported as “leaning” to a particular candidate. The June 26th winner, presumably Gov. McMaster, then faces state Rep. James Smith (D-Columbia) who clinched the Democratic nomination on primary night.
