Teabaggers surge in SC, NV
 Surging in GOP primaries, they mean


Is the tea party movement on the verge of more big political wins? 

On the eve of Tuesday's 10-state primary, two of the tea party's best-known candidates are surging 
in final polls and appear to be in good shape to win their respective GOP nominations.

In South Carolina, state Rep. Nikki Haley appears to have weathered "Raghead" slurs in her bid for 
the state's GOP gubernatorial nomination. According the latest survey, Haley, a teabagger favorite, 
leads her nearest opponent, Gresham Barrett, 43 percent to 23 percent.

Haley's lead has remained virtually unchanged in recent weeks, even after two South Carolina political 
operatives blogger Will Folks and lobbyist Larry Marchant went public with claims they had affairs 
with Haley. Haley strongly denied the accusations and had many defenders, including Gov. Mark Sanford, 
who knows a thing or two about infidelity, and Alaska's publicity whore, who endorsed Haley last month. 

54 percent just don't believe the claims against Haley, who is viewed favorably by 58 percent of 
Republicans in the state. Still, Haley has to make it past 50 percent in Tuesday's vote to avoid a runoff.

In Nevada, another tea party candidate, former state Rep. Sharron Angle, was running a distant third in 
the state's GOP Senate primary in polls less than two weeks ago. But according to the latest poll, Angle 
now leads the race, with 32 percent support among likely GOP voters. Former state GOP chair and 
onetime chicken-wrangler Sue Lowden is at 24 percent; Danny Tarkanian is at 23 percent.

Once again we see evidence that the Teabaggers are hurting nobody but the Rethuglicans.
So far, all this "surging" the media is lying about has only split the GOP vote - I love it.
