The majority of South Carolina residents are Republican which is considered by most to be a conservative political party. The South Carolina 2014 US House Races show that 66% of thepopulation that voted is Republican and 33% is voted Democratic. The Republican Party is also referred to as Grand Old Party or GOP and their “core belief is that an individuals destiny shouldbe in that individual’s hands, governmental power and resources should be kept close to the people, through their state and community leaders, and not centralized in distant federal government agencies”[ CITATION svg14 \l 1033 ]. Republicans believe that each person is responsible for his/her own place in society. That the government should allow each person to have the ability to secure the benefits of society for themselves, their families and for the people who are unable to take care of themselves. That the government should only intervene in specificcases where the state cannot effectively act at its level. [ CITATION MyT14 \l 1033 ]
