Contributing sentiments towards policy:

97% : Standing in line for Trump's rally in North Charleston, Cadie Limbaker said she was glad Haley ran and was proud to have two South Carolinians running for president -- including Sen. Tim Scott of North Charleston who dropped out and endorsed Trump.
73% : "Not all voters in South Carolina, one of the nation's fastest-growing states, remember Haley's time as governor, which ended prematurely after Trump won the 2016 election and made her his first United Nations ambassador.
53% : The Dukes, of Newberry, appreciated some of the things Trump had done but wanted a change.
51% : "The question in my mind isn't, 'What do I think about South Carolina?'" he said.
47% : "My primary motivation in this election, just like last election, is to beat Donald Trump," he said at a Haley event in Elgin.
43% : And despite her assertions that she's more likely to beat Biden, most South Carolina voters still believe Trump has the better chance, according to the CBS poll of registered voters conducted between Feb. 5-10.
37% : "(Voters) may have a candidate they really like, policies in the past they really respected, but no matter what that person says or does, they're not Donald Trump," said Scott Huffmon, director of the Winthrop Poll.His latest poll, released last week, showed Haley trailing Trump by 36 percentage points among people likely to vote in the Feb. 24 contest that pits the former president against the former governor.
32% : For other supporters, the fact Haley is not Trump is the most important thing about her campaign.
24% : Three-fourths of South Carolina voters say it makes no difference at all that Haley's from South Carolina, according to a recent CBS News Poll.Other results of the poll suggest why: Four of every five people likely to vote in the GOP primary said Trump "fights for people" like them, compared to just over half believing Haley does.
19% : Huffmon thinks this is due more to her increasing attacks on Trump than on any baggage from her past -- on the contrary, Haley has been consistently popular before her run for the Republican presidential nomination.
3% : Voters' answers also suggest Haley's attacks on Trump may backfire among the MAGA faithful, with nearly two-thirds calling her criticism of Trump's mental fitness unfair.
