Donald Trump holds a large lead as voters head to the polls for the GOP Presidential primary in South Carolina in just over a week. The election takes place Saturday, February 20.
Trump has double the support of his closest competitor, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
The real estate mogul also leads Cruz among evangelicals, a critical voting block in a state that is also big on military issues…
According to The Hill:
“A new poll released Friday shows that Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has a sizable lead in South Carolina coming off his win in New Hampshire.
His nearest competitor is Iowa caucus winner Ted Cruz, with 19 percent. In a reversal from Iowa, Trump leads Cruz by 10 points among evangelical voters, a group that makes up 60 percent of the state’s GOP voters.
Marco Rubio comes in third place, with 15 percent, followed by Jeb Bush, with 11 percent, John Kasich, with 9 percent and Ben Carson, with 5 percent. Just 5 percent of those surveyed say they’re undecided.”
