South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley holds a substantial lead over Democratic challenger Vincent Sheheen in this year's gubernatorial race, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

A survey of likely South Carolina voters found 52 percent of those quizzed favored Haley, who is winding up her first term, compared to 37 percent for Sheheen. Seven percent were undecided.

It's the second matchup for both. Haley beat Sheheen by 4.5 percentage points in the 2010 election to become South Carolina's first female governor.

At age 42, she is the nation's youngest active governor, and the first female governor in any state of Indian heritage. Born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa to Sikh parents, Haley converted to the Methodist church later in life.

The Rasmussen telephone survey of 750 people was conducted April 14-15, and has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
