Latest Poll: Trump Gains in South Carolina
In our latest poll, conducted February 10th – 11th, Donald Trump has increased his lead by four points. The toplines:
Coming hot off his win in New Hampshire -and with a significant amount of his time devoted to South Carolina- it’s little surprise that Trump is 16-17 points ahead. It appears that the only demographics that Trump isn’t currently winning are 18-29 year-old voters and self-described “very liberal” voters, who prefer Rubio and Kasich, respectively. Evangelists prefer Trump to Cruz by a margin of 10 points – a significant change from Iowa, where Cruz led with evangelical voters by four points.
When respondents were asked of their second choice for the nomination, Rubio and Cruz command the first and second spots (within 2 points), with others trailing closely.
The poll was conducted for the Augusta Chronicle, Morris News Service, and Fox 5 Atlanta.
