In an election year, we often hear from Furman Politics and International Affairs Professor and alumna Danielle Vinson ’89. CBS News caught up with the election expert in an on-camera interview in Washington, D.C. In it, she describes South Carolina’s long-held affinity for Joe Biden and why support for the candidate has waned in recent weeks. Vinson also explains why South Carolina is an important predictor of the eventual nominee, and why there are so many voters who remain undecided in the run-up to the state’s Democratic Party primary. “A little choice is a good thing,” she said. “A lot of choice is overwhelming to voters.”
