A new poll shows Herman Cain’s popularity continues to grow in the state, despite recent allegations of sexual harassment dating back to the 1990s.
The Rasmussen Reports poll shows that Cain has the support of 33 percent of likely South Carolina voters.
Mitt Romney was second with 23 percent and Newt Gingrich was third with 15 percent.
No other candidate was in double figures.
Three-out-of-four respondents said they were aware of the sexual harassment charges made against Cain.
Although, only 30 percent of those polled said they believed the allegations were “very likely” or “somewhat likely” to be true.
However, the race still appears to be wide open, because only 28 percent of those surveyed said they were committed to their candidate.
The poll of 770 likely voters had a margin of error of +/- 4 percent.
