Trump and Clinton Dominate South Carolina
The latest polls by ARG for South Carolina have revealed that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are leading their respective parties.
Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?
- Hillary Clinton – 65%
- Bernie Sanders – 27%
Which Republican candidate would you vote for?
- Donald Trump – 35%
- John Kasich – 15%
- Marco Rubio – 14%
- Ted Cruz – 12%
- Jeb Bush – 10%
For Clinton, South Carolina is what New Hampshire was to Bernie Sanders. No one expects Sanders to win in South Carolina, and that will remain especially true if he continues to struggle to secure the African-American vote.
Clinton is the master at turning on her southern drawl to woo voters in areas with thick southern accents. For whatever reason, the African-American vote is in her grasp and she will likely pull out a large victory in South Carolina.
Sanders is desperately trying to win over African-American voters, but he is struggling to gain traction and South Carolina is more than likely a right off at this point. In theory, Sanders is a much more attractive candidate for the black community, but they continue to gravitate to Clinton, who has done virtually nothing for them in her entire political career.
For the Republicans, Trump is still the man to beat and he should score a decent victory in the state. Ted Cruz may be able to challenge Trump as he is tapping into the religiosity of voters and trying to win them over with his religious roots.
John Kasich is polling well after a decent showing in New Hampshire. However, it remains to be seen if he can continue to rise or if he is nothing but a flash in the pan.
