The establishment is NOT going to like the results of this poll. The South Carolina election results look like they are going to shock everyone.
A new internal poll from the South Carolina Republican presidential primary shows a tightening race, with Donald Trump still maintaining a strong lead, but Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio gaining ground.
The poll results were published Thursday by the Weekly Standard in a brief story by editor-in-chief Bill Kristol.
Kristol reported the results came to him from a political operative whom he trusts and is not affiliated with any of the campaigns.
The results: Trump 32 percent, Cruz 26, Rubio 20, Gov. Jeb Bush 10, Ben Carson 7, and Gov. John Kasich 2.
The article does not indicate how recently the poll was conducted, but presumably it was done sometime in the past week.
“Take it with the usual grains of salt, but I do trust these were the actual results of an honest and competent pollster doing his best to get an accurate read on the situation,” Kristol wrote.
