Donald Trump won the South Carolina primary tonight. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are neck and neck in second place.
The victory is not by the double-digit margin that pre-election polls had suggested. Still, this makes back-to-back victories for Trump, who more than doubled the vote of his closest competitor in New Hampshire last week.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio remain locked in a battle for second place.
With just 9 percent of precincts reporting, Cruz has 22 percent and Rubio has 21 percent. Trump leads with 34 percent.
Lagging far behind are the three remaining candidates – Ohio Gov. John Kasich, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, all of whom appear to be stuck in single digits. Their fate could hang in the balance Saturday night.
I wish those three would just give it up already. They have no chance of winning and all they’re doing by staying in is helping Trump.
Meanwhile, in Nevada, the unindicted felon beat the socialist in the Democrat caucus.
