Joe Biden still sitting comfortable in South Carolina

For the period 11 June through 22 July 2019, Joe Biden is polling strong in South Carolina with 37.5% of potential primary voters giving him the nod.  Real Clear Politics has Bernie Sanders polling at 12.5% while Kamala Harris trails at 11.3%.

The South Carolina primary, to be held on 29 February 2020, is seen as a barometer for how well the candidates may do with black voters.  The majority of South Carolina’s Democratic primary participants are black and blacks have historically provided significant electoral support to the Democratic Party.
