A new poll released Sunday shows South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster now has a 22 percentage-point lead over his closest GOP primary challenger, former two-time state agency head Catherine Templeton…

The results come from a poll of 800 S.C. registered voters — 400 Republicans and 400 Democrats.

Conducted by Target-Insyght, a nonpartisan Michigan-based research and polling firm, the survey found 46 percent of South Carolina voters would cast their ballot for McMaster if they could vote today, compared to 22 percent who said they would vote for Templeton.

Another 6 percent of voters said they would vote for Lt. Gov Kevin Bryant, with 4 percent saying they would vote for former Lt. Gov. Yancey McGill and 1 percent supporting Greenville businessman John Warren.
