Donald Trump is dominating the Republican field in South Carolina, according to a new poll by the South Carolina House Republican Caucus.

The poll was taken Feb. 11th and 12th, and it shows Trump with 34.5% of the vote.

That compares to 15.5% for Sen. Ted Cruz, former Florida governor Jeb  Bush with 13%, and Sen. Marco Rubio with 12.5% support.

Ohio Governor John Kasich came in fifth with 8.5%, followed by Dr. Ben Carson with 5%.

Eleven percent remain undecided before the state’s Feb. 20th Republican primary.

The poll says Trump wins in all categories including among self-described conservatives, moderates, independents and libertarians.
