If Joe Biden is “sleepy,” as Donald Trump has suggested
, then the other candidates vying for the Democratic nomination must be comatose.
A new poll published by the Post and Courier
finds that 46% of Democratic primary voters in South Carolina intend on voting for Joe Biden
. Bernie Sanders, the next closest candidate, trails at 15%.
Biden is the most popular candidate among black voters in South Carolina, who made up two-thirds
of Democratic primary voters in the state in 2016.
According to an average of all polls calculated by RealClearPolitics,
Biden’s lead over his fellow contenders has only grown since he announced his candidacy at the end of April. Voters, however, appear to have cooled somewhat toward Sanders, who has fallen in the polls.
