This Week In Polls: The Battle Of Fort Trumpter

Share

Heading into the big day of the South Carolina primary, the polls in the state clearly show Donald Trump in the lead. But it’s a muddled picture in the race for second place — between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio — and also whether or not any of his foes have any late-breaking momentum.

  • The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll: Trump 28 percent, Cruz 23 percent, Rubio 15 percent, Bush 13 percent, and 9 percent each for Kasich and Carson.
  • Fox News: Trump 32 percent, Cruz 19 percent, Rubio 15 percent, Bush and Carson 9 percent, and Kasich 6 percent.
  • Clemson University: Trump 28 percent, Cruz 19 percent, Rubio 15 percent, Bush 10 percent, Kasich 9 percent, and Carson 6 percent.
  • Emerson College: Trump 36 percent, Rubio 19 percent, Cruz 18 percent, Bush and Kasich 10 percent, and Carson 6 percent .
  • American Research Group: Trump 34 percent, Rubio 22 percent, Kasich 14 percent, Cruz 13 percent, Bush 9 percent, and Carson 4 percent.
  • Polling commissioned by the South Carolina state House GOP: Trump 34 percent, Cruz 18 percent, Rubio 16 percent, Bush 14 percent, Kasich 9 percent, and Carson 5 percent.
  • Republican-aligned firm Harper Polling: Trump 29 percent, Cruz 17 percent, Rubio 15 percent, Bush 14 percent, Kasich 13 percent, and Carson 8 percent.

NEVADA DEMOCRATS

There is also one contest Saturday for Democrats: the Nevada caucuses. This race been sparsely polled — perhaps due in part to the sheer difficulty of getting a reliable voter turnout model for caucuses. But here’s what we do have:

  • CNN has a dead heat with Clinton at 48 percent, Sanders 47 percent.
  • Republican polling firm Gravis Marketing has Clinton ahead with 53 percent, and Sanders 47 percent.

    If Bush does not finish at least third in South Carolina and Nevada, he may have no choice but to quit. Dr. Carson may do the same after this round. Neither has a chance.

    Trump may well become the GOP nominee but unless Sanders is the Democratic nominee (an unlikely event) Trump will never become President. Hillary Clinton will spare us a Trump presidency. And that would be a very commendable thing for her to do.
