The latest Clemson poll shows Carson closing in on Trump’s formerly huge lead among South Carolina Republicans. Trump leads with 23 percent, with Carson at 19 percent and within the margin of error of 4 percentage points.
Rubio, Cruz, Bush and Fiorina follow clustering at 9 percent, 8 percent, 7 percent and 6 percent respectively.
Prediction: Evangelicals are going to break heavily against Trump the more he attacks Carson on faith and life.
