South Carolina poll: Cruz gaining on Trump

The Florida Republican has taken some of Trump's potential support in the Palmetto State and now stands as the most popular second choice among the states voters.

A robocall urging South Carolinians to vote for Ted Cruz takes aim at Donald Trump over the billionaire's stance on the Confederate flag.

What's indisputably true is that the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders campaigns have treated the race as a close contest with extremely high stakes, as Barabak explained in his analysis of the race. Trump spoke at the Myrtle Beach Sports Center about noon Friday and has another appearance set for 3 p.m. Friday in Pawleys Island. "I know South Carolinians do, too".

Trump's five-point advantage in this poll is the smallest lead for the frontrunner since the fall, when Carson pulled to within single digits.

Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said, "Cruz said at the time that it was a decision for leaders in the state to make and his position has not changed". But with poll after poll showing Bush hovering around 10 percent - fighting with John Kasich for fourth place - that looks less and less likely every hour.

This state is known for political dirty tricks, low blows and under-the-radar character assassination. Other candidates visited the upstate and the midlands Thursday.

The women who grew up in Clinton's time thought of a female president as a distant achievement, like going to the moon. At the answer -"Hillary Clinton, of course!" - the girl groans and stops recording. "She ran as Hillary Obama".

Transformers 5, 6 and 7 to launch back-to-back
Now they've given some new information about those films, including the first solo movie for a robot in disguise. Paramount announced released dates for three new Transformers sequels.

"There's nobody saying anything behind your back". "South Carolina is the first state that represents the entire GOP coalition of voters", she said.

A win in SC would be pivotal for any of the Republican candidates; however, it would be a particularly important one for Trump who is entering the primary hot off of a decisive win in New Hampshire.

Trump on Friday called on Americans to boycott Apple products until the company complies with a court order to unlock the phone of one of the shooters in the San Bernadino attack late past year.

Trump earned 34 percent and Cruz 20 percent.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida became the most-likely-to-succeed Wednesday, winning the endorsement of S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley. "I like cleanliness, and I think you're better off going there than maybe some place that you have no idea where the food is coming from".

All three candidates had a chance to answer more personal questions, with Kasich recounting his parents' death when hit by a drunken driver, and Bush delving into overcoming his introversion on the campaign trail. A finish behind Rubio could hurry his exit from the race. More than 600,000 voters turned out in the 2012 GOP presidential primary. He said the ad "criticizes Trump for jumping in and telling SC what to do", which he said showed "arrogance" and a "lack of empathy". "Yeah, he might be little over the top...but he's just honest".
