The 2016 Republican South Carolina Primary---Trump Wins

As others have said, this is the day where Republican campaigns will be "defined"...........or come to an end.

Final RCP polling averages before this crucial contest leaves Donald Trump in a comfortable lead at 31.8%, with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio in a virtual tie for second place, (Rubio--18.8% & Cruz---18.6%).  In the "race" for third place, Jeb Bush is at 10.7%, followed by Kasich, 9.0% and Carson, 6.8%.

I will keep this thread open through out the day to add updates on this primary, along with any breaking news stories that develop.
