For the first time in more than seven months, new poll numbers gauging Gov. Nikki Haley’s job approval are coming. A new Winthrop Poll will be released Wednesday, and it will include Haley approval numbers broken down by general population, registered voters and voters who voted in the most recent presidential election.
The results will give some indication how a massive breach of taxpayer data at the S.C. Department of Revenue has affected voters’ opinions of Haley heading into the 2014 gubernatorial election. The State newspaper will have exclusive access next week to additional polling data because of an agreement dating back to the beginning of the poll.
April’s Winthrop Poll, the last to include Haley approval numbers, offered mixed results for the Republican governor. Additional polling measuring where Haley stands could be coming soon from Raleigh-based Public Policy Polling, which is conducting gubernatorial polling.
