South Carolina has joined the list of historically red states to be competitive.

According to a new Public Policy Polling survey, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is within the margin of error of GOP rival Donald Trump, just like in neighboring Georgia.

The survey of South Carolina voters shows Trump has a 2-point lead with 41-39 percent for Clinton. Third-party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein get 5 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

South Carolina has been a Republican state going back multiple elections, even handing a win to Bob Dole in the 1996 election versus incumbent Bill Clinton.

The new PPP survey suggests the Palmetto State could become a battleground state in the years ahead.

The closeness of the race can be attributed to Democrats being more enthusiastic about their nominee than the GOP is with Trump. Clinton wins 84 percent of the Democratic vote, compared to Trump winning just 77 percent of the Republican vote.

Neither candidate is well-liked by South Carolina voters, and Trump's favorability is slightly worse than Clinton's. He is viewed negatively by 56 percent of voters and she is at 55 percent. They both have a 38 percent favorability rating.

They survey of 1,290 South Carolina voters was conducted on Aug. 9-10. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
