We need your buy-in immediately because:
• the polls have Vincent statistically tied with Nikki Haley
• Haley’s extremist allies will stop at NOTHING to make sure she wins in November, including airing dirty and untrue ads
• the Koch Brothers have pledged to spend nearly $300 million dollars this election cycle to promote their extreme agenda, so we’ve got to be ready for anything

Sheheen for South Carolinae
That doesn’t fully communicate the level of their excitement, because the yellow highlighting on the first few lines didn’t stick when I copied and pasted that. But they’re pretty worked up.
Here’s a link to The State‘s story about the poll. The headline says “Poll shows SC Gov. Nikki Haley with narrow lead over challenger.” But the Sheheen people are right. They’re 3 percentage points apart with a 3.7 percent margin of error, so technically, it’s a statistical dead heat…
Reading the State article about the poll, it seems like almost a “push poll” based on some of the questions asked. Since it was a poll commissioned by the SC Democratic party, you can believe that they wouldn’t have released the results if they hadn’t been spinnable for Sheheen. I find it interesting that despite all of the negative coverage that Haley has received in the last 4 years, (well-deserved or not) that she still has a 9 point favorability rating advantage over Sheheen.
Only a minority of South Carolinians even know who Vincent Sheheen is. I bet I could stand in a parking lot of a Wal Mart in Northeast Columbia and show people a photo of Sheheen and get less than a 30% recognition rate. Sadly, I bet Haley would get somewhere around 75-85%.
A large percentage of those who will vote for Sheheen wouldn’t be able to pick him out of a lineup.
Sure they know. Sheheen is this guy: http://bit.ly/1pE9eBy
I was going to donate but decided to set my money on fire instead to save time.
Why do you promote what are obviously partisan lies based on a phony poll?
Given that this is the Democratic-leaning PPP and included all registered voters (vs likely voters) and Sheheen was still 3 points down suggests bad news for Vincent come election day.
