PPP Poll Shows Trump And Clinton Leading Big In South Carolina
PPP's new South Carolina poll continues to find Donald Trump with a wide lead in the state.
Trump has a very comfortable lead with 35% to 18% each for Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, 10% for John Kasich, and 7% each for Jeb Bush and Ben Carson.
No big surprise there, but how about this: when asked "Would you support or oppose banning homosexuals from entering the United States?," 31% of Trump's supporters are in favor of such a ban.
Additionally, 32% of Trump voters continue to believe the policy of Japanese internment during World War II was a good one.
On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders 55% to 34%.
Clinton and Sanders are tied with white voters at 46%, which pretty much mirrors how the race played out in Iowa.
But among African Americans Clinton continues to have a substantial advantage over Sanders at 63/23.
