Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio boast of 'massive' and 'huge' crowds in South Carolina



Jeb Bush’s press team finally has some news it can use.

“Great front pages for Jeb Bush in South Carolina this morning,” read a news release Thursday. “The crowds have been massive for Jeb in South Carolina.”

Marco Rubio, whom Bush beat in New Hampshire, is working to move past the debate and his team is working to shape perceptions as well. “Huge, Warm Welcome For Marco In South Carolina,” read a news release from the campaign, which talked of “standing room only” crowds.

Both have work to do. The Real Clear Politics average of polls in South Carolina:

Trump - 36 percent
Cruz - 20 percent
Rubio - 13 percent
Bush - 10 percent
