Poll: Sanford Holds Slim Lead In Congressional Race (US House Dist. SC-1 vs Colbert Busch)

Republican Mark Sanford has taken a slim lead over Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch just two days before the special election in the S.C. 1st congressional district, according to a poll released Sunday night.

Sanford was down 9 percentage points — 50 percent to 41 percent — in a Public Policy Polling survey two weekends ago.

The same firm found this weekend that the former S.C. governor was up 47 percent to 46 percent over Colbert Busch, a political newcomer and sister of TV comedian Stephen Colbert. Green Party candidate Eugene Platt received four percent. Another four percent were undecided.

The result was within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent, suggesting Colbert Busch could be ahead.
