Poll: Walker, Bush Trouncing Rubio, Paul, Cruz in South Carolina

In the latest poll of likely voters in South Carolina, none of the declared GOP competitors for the nomination for president in 2016 came close to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.


Walker, who led the Winthrop University poll, garnered 13.6 percent support of respondents. Our American Revival spokeswoman AshLee Strong has said that Walker will not announce his candidacy until after his state’s budget is complete, but as a frontrunner and apparent “anti-Bush” contender, there is no question that Walker will run.

Bush, who came within a point of Walker at 12.7 percent support, has also not yet announced his candidacy.

The three candidates who have announced polled significantly lower than Bush and Walker. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who announced his candidacy on Monday in Miami, only managed support from four percent likely voters. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took just over six percent, while Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took third place in the poll overall with eight percent support. 

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham came in close behind Cruz at 7.6 percent.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie tied with about five percent support.

The poll reported that more than 25 percent of South Carolina likely voters are not sure who they would vote for at this point in the season.
