Hypocrisy from 'values' voters in South Carolina

With Jenny Sanford filing for divorce today it seems like an appropriate time to discuss how self declared 'values' voters in South Carolina feel about their Governor.

13% of respondents on our poll said 'moral and family values' was the issue most important to them, a distant second to the economy and jobs which was the top concern of 54% of respondents.

While 51% of all south carolina voters disapprove of Mark Sanford's job performance, only 38% of professed values voters do.

While 45% of all South Carolina voters want Sanford to resign, only 33% of the 'moral and family values' crowd wants him to.

And while 32% of all South Carolina voters think Sanford should be impeached, only 28% of this crowd does.

Where do you think these folks stood on impeaching Bill Clinton? It's clear there is forgiveness for politicians who cheat on their wives and abuse state resources to do so- as long as they're Republicans.
