A new poll from Winthrop University finds that Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-S.C.) favorability in his home state has plummeted after co-authoring legislation that would grant amnesty to 11 million illegal aliens and double annual legal immigration flows. According to the poll, only 45% of GOP voters (including leaners) support the job that Sen. Graham is doing.

In February, after the Gang of Eight had announced their principles for immigration reform, but before the bill was drafted, Graham's approval rating among GOP voters was 72%. His approval rating was 57.5% in April just before the Senate began debate on Graham's amnesty bill, S.744.
