With 54% of voters not giving any credence to rumors about extra marital affairs, Nikki Haley has a strong 20 point lead in the polls headed into Tuesday's primary.

From the Public Policy Polling blog:

Nikki Haley hasn't suffered any damage whatsoever after accusations of multiple extramarital affairs and is headed for an easy first place finish in Tuesday's Republican primary for Governor of South Carolina.

Haley has a 20 point lead, getting 43% of the vote. Gresham Barrett looks like the favorite for the second runoff spot. He's at 23%, followed by Henry McMaster at 16%, and Andre Bauer at 12%.

Looks like we'll be seeing more of Haley and Barrett in the near future.
