POLITICO gives us a good news bad news report (at least from my perspective) on Lindsey Graham. The article cites two new polls that show support for Graham in his home state of South Carolina is dropping overall. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that his political challengers still have very little chance of getting elected over Graham.
But the POLITICO report actually contained another little gem. See, Graham’s approval ratings aren’t just dropping, they are dropping among conservatives. And what’s more, if Graham’s Republican challengers’ campaign rhetoric is any indication, one of the reasons for the dip in conservative approval was Graham’s support for war in Syria.
I’ve argued before that the growing distaste for unnecessary war among conservatives is likely to disappear once a Republican gets back into the White House.
But I have to admit this news put a smile on my face.
