New Poll Shows Barrett is the Strongest Republican for Governor Against Democrats

December 5, 2009

Dear Friends,

Sorry to bug you on a Saturday, but this good news just couldn’t wait until Monday.

According to a new poll out this morning from Rasmussen Reports, a nationally recognized and highly respected independent polling firm, Gresham Barrett is the strongest Republican candidate for Governor overall against the Democrats.

In general election matchups, Barrett outpaces Superintendent of Education Jim Rex and State Senator Vincent Sheheen by 6 and 22 points respectively. The other good news in the numbers is that Gresham is the only top polling GOP candidate who does not hold a statewide office. That means we’ve got plenty of room to grow.

These new numbers clearly show the momentum is with Gresham heading into the new year, and we couldn’t have gotten this far without the support of our more than 3,000 donors and volunteers, like you.

But, we cannot allow ourselves to become complacent. Now isn’t the time to rest on our laurels. We must keep pushing forward. This is a marathon not a sprint after all, and we’ve got a long way to run before next November.

That’s why we’re asking for your help today.

We need you to do two simple things. First, sign up to volunteer by clicking here. We need folks from all over the state to help us spread Gresham’s conservative vision for job creation in South Carolina. Whether you’re willing to make phone calls, stuff envelopes, write letters to the editor or canvass your neighborhood, there’s an easy way for everyone to get involved with our campaign.

Next, we need you to make a contribution online by visiting No matter what you can give, know that every little bit counts and will make a big difference in our campaign to build a more prosperous South Carolina.

Thank you for all that you do. We truly appreciate your support.
