Washington, D.C., October 1, 2015 – One America News Network, “OAN”, a credible source for 24/7 national and international news, released its most recent 2016 Presidential Poll for South Carolina. Donald Trump dominates as the GOP front-runner in the latest poll for South Carolina with a strong 29.1 percent. Trailing behind the real estate mogul is Dr. Ben Carson with just over half that amount at 16.4 percent. Closely following Carson is businesswoman Carly Fiorina at 11.1 percent, landing the former HP top executive in the top three. The top three, all political outsiders, represent 56.6 percent of the tabulated vote. Rounding out the top five are Senator Ted Cruz coming in with 8.1% percent, followed closely by Senator Marco Rubio at 8.0 percent.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a commanding lead with 50 percent of the vote, followed by Vice President Joe Biden, a potential candidate who is still on the fence about running, at 19 percent. Senator Bernie Sanders rounds out the top three at 13 percent. No other candidate scored above one percent, leaving it a three person race in South Carolina with only two declared candidates as we enter October.
According to Robert Herring Sr., CEO of One America News Network, “Trump continues to lead in all regional and national polls. His appearance on 60 Minutes on Sunday followed by his federal tax proposal on Monday has kept Mr. Trump front and center in the media. It will be interesting to see where Mr. Trump and the other Presidential candidates land in our national poll coming out this Friday.”
Gravis Marketing, a nonpartisan research firm, conducted a random survey of 1,290 registered voters across South Carolina regarding the presidential election. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 3%. The total may not equal exactly 100% due to rounding. The polls were conducted on September 25-27, 2015 using interactive voice response, IVR, technology and weighted separately for each population in the question presented. The poll was conducted exclusively for One America News Network. See www.oann.com/pollnational
