The race for the Democratic Presidential nomination is not even close in South Carolina, but the race for president on the Republican side is much closer, according to RealClear Politics.

The website says the Monmouth poll released today shows Hillary Clinton with a huge lead in South Carolina, and the Public Policy Poll shows her with an even bigger lead.

Here’s what the two polls show. Monmouth says Clinton has 69 percent in SC compared to 21 percent for Sen. Bernie Sanders and one percent for former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley. The Public Policy Poll shows Clinton at 72 percent to Sanders’ 18 percent and O'Malley’s five percent.

The two polls were released Tuesday, according to RealClear Politics.

On the Republican side, RCP says Monmouth has Donald Trump in the lead in South Carolina at 25 percent, followed by Dr. Ben Carson at 21 percent.The rest of the Republican pack, according to Monmouth, has Ted Cruz at 15 percent, Marco Rubio at 13 percent, Jeb Bush at eight percent, Carly Fiorina at five percent, John Kasich at three percent; Mike Huckabee, South Carolina senior U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul tied at two percent; and New Jersey Governor Christ Christie and Rick Santorum with one percent each and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal at zero percent.

RealClear Politics did not show a margin of error in either poll.
