A Monmouth University poll out Tuesday finds Donald Trump leading among South Carolina Republicans with 30% support, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 15%. No other candidates register in double digits.
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has sparred repeatedly with Trump in recent weeks, is well behind at 4%.
Reacting on Twitter to the latest survey showing his strong standing in the 2016 race, Trump wasn’t exactly magnanimous — not that you’d expect anything less.
Congrats @LindseyGrahamSC. You just got 4 points in your home state of SC—far better than zero nationally. You’re only 26 pts behind me.

South Carolina’s primary is scheduled for next February and is historically a critical battleground for candidates seeking the GOP nomination.
I admit it’s really funny but how will the media look at this? Will they start to fume again? Leave your thoughts below in our comment section and add to your facebook/twitter timeline.
