Trump Collapsing in South Carolina

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist poll, released Friday, finds that what had been a 16-point lead for Donald Trump is now only 5 points:

  • Donald Trump – 28%
  • Ted Cruz – 23%
  • Marco Rubio – 15%
  • Jeb Bush – 13%
  • Ben Carson – 9%
  • John Kasich – 9%.

Trump’s decline among South Carolina Republicans came a day after a WSJ/NBC News national poll of Republican primary voters found that Trump lost his once-commanding lead and fallen behind Cruz. Most national polls, and the Real Clear Politics average for the South Carolina Republican Presidential Primary show Trump with a double-digit lead over his rivals.

The new Journal/NBC/Marist poll in South Carolina was conducted Feb. 15-17, after Trump’s abysmal performance during the CBS South Carolina GOP Debate. The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 3.6 percent for the Republicans.

The new poll also found that that Hillary Clinton maintains a wide lead over Bernie Sanders among likely South Carolina Democrat primary voters.

  • Hillary Clinton – 60%
  • Bernie Sanders – 32%

Hillary maintains a huge advantage among the state’s African-American population, especially older black voters — out polling Sanders 78% to 12%. Sanders leads Hillary among white voters, 51% to 46%. The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4.8 percent for the Democrats.
