Rubio sees gain in South Carolina, poll shows

9

November

Monmouth University Poll of likely Republican South Carolina voters:

Ben Carson - 28 percent

Donald Trump - 27 percent

Marco Rubio - 11 percent (up from 6 percent in August)

Ted Cruz - 9 percent

Jeb Bush - 7 percent (down from 9 percent in August)

From polling memo: The GOP nomination contest remains very fluid. Just 17% of likely South Carolina primary voters say they are completely decided on their vote choice, while another 39% say they have a strong preference but are still willing to consider other candidates. Another 23% say their current pick is only a slight preference and 20% say they are really undecided even if they name a first choice at this time. Trump’s support appears to be a little more solid than the rest of the field, with 33% of his backers saying their minds are completely made up, compared to just 12% for Carson.
