What's the Democratic voting percentage among whites in South Carolina?  Its probably higher than almost any other deep south state, right?

Just checked, found this map, I guess its from 2008, no idea how accurate, but it looks like I was more or less right on that guess:

Charleston County went from 61.9% White and 34.5% Black in the 2000 Census to 64.2% White and 29.8% Black in the 2010 Census.  The Black population of Charleston County actually went down from 107K to 104K.

True across the state, which went from 30% black to 27% black over the same period. Demographic changes will likely make SC more Republican over time.

So, is it that whites are moving in, blacks are moving out, or a combination of both?
