So, the Republican is winning in South Carolina? We need more polls to confirm this, but it makes me a bit nervous about the Democrats' chances of picking up a Senate seat here.

This is what "safe R" looks like in a Democratic wave election.

Wow, Scott only leads by 22-28 points?! Pathetic. So much smaller than Hillary's 40-50 point leads, and as we all know she's super vulnerable. Does that make Scott like...super mega ultra turbo vulnerable?

Invalid argument. This is a SC poll while the Primary polls are NATIONAL polls. I highly doubt many SC voters are undecideds or swingy voters (unlike Democrats in the primary). I do get your point but I think you can't compare apples and oranges. It is much more likely that Hillary loses the Primary than Scott loses re-election.  
And by the way: I have never suggested that Hillary will not the inevitable (at least almost certain) Democratic nominee.

I know, I'm just messing around. What else is there to do on a thread about Tim Scott cruising to re-election?

FWIW, she also has 40-50 point leads in IA/NH/SC anyway, so undecideds wouldn't really make a difference.

As we all know, South Carolina will be a critical race for the Dems in 2016...

I realize you're joking, but you're comparing primary polls to general polls. Not valid.

But if the Democrats run a white person, Republicans will quickly abandon ship!

I realize it's not my place to accuse people of sockery here, but a quick skimming of his posts raises a lot of red flags that would lead me to strongly suspect that he's not only a troll, but a troll who has been here before.

Good for South Carolina; it would've been hard seeing them elect a black senator a few decades ago.  It strikes me as the most "Enlightened" of the hardcore segregationist states (LA, AL, MS, GA, SC) at this point.

Scott will remain vulnerable only to White Republicans. If none run against him, he is safe.

Given most African Americans are Democrats, no they aren't any more "enlightened" than any other Southern State.

This "given" condition is true about every state. Poor means for determining enlightenment.

No, he won't. White Republicans overwhelmingly voted for and still support him. Why should he be vulnerable because of his race even though he is liked across the state Huh

It's worth noting Scott was unopposed in the primary in 2012. No guarantee that's true in the future.

It's still relevant, if say John Lewis's successor (who almost certainly will be a black Democrat) runs in Georgia, or Jim Clyburn's successor (ditto) runs in South Carolina.

This is so absurd.  Scott won by a bigger margin than Graham in 2014. Nobody can beat Scott.  The upstate and Charleston would overwhelmingly vote him in again (even if his opponent were white).  Even if he lost out with some racists it wouldn't be nearly enough to knock him out.  Not even close.  The only way Scott loses is if he gets involved in a scandal.

Not to mention Scott already beat a white guy in a primary before, in a landslide I should add (and he was the son of STROM THURMOND).

Oh noes, it looks bad for Dems in the South Carolina senate race. How ever will we take back the senate without SC?  Seriously though, even in a Democratic wave, Scott would still win by 10-15 percent. SC is one of the most inelastic states in the nation.

This reads that they're not enlightened because they're not Democrats...

It means the only reason they're voting for Scott is the (R) next to is name. If he was a (D) or (I) he'd be flattened, mostly be racial reasons.

So they're voting for him out of staunch loyalty to whomever the Republican in the race is, but if he were a Democrat, these same people wouldn't be voting for him for mostly racial reasons?  Sorry, but that makes no sense.
