NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made his final pitch at a rally on Friday at the North Charleston Convention Center.

A crowd of more than 2,000 people came out. There was a range of people in the audience including many college students, veterans, decided voters and some undecided voters as well. Trump was very direct in his speech that lasted about 35 minutes. 

"It's crunch time folks, it's crunch time you know what that means right, we've got to get out tomorrow, we've got to vote," says Trump.

He also took the time to defend his conservatism. 

"I'm the most conservative person in the world on the border, I'm the most conservative person in the world with respect to getting rid of common core, I'm the most conservative person in the world with getting rid of Obamacare," he said.

Trump says he's also conservative when it comes to rebuilding the military and veteran care.

"He's not bought and paid for, bottom line is he's going to make America great again," says Trump supporter, John Barbour.

"I guess by the end of this month I'm going to have like $25 million in this thing," says Trump as he talks about his campaign. 

"Everybody thinks he's a little, I don't know, a little over the top, or unreasonable maybe," says a Trump supporter from Illinois, Elvis Martin. "I don't know how you want to describe it, but when you sit in there and you listen to him, he starts making sense."

Trump fired back tonight about this perception.

"If you had your choice of having someone with a wonderful personality but was bad on jobs, bad on the economy bad on security, bad on the border, bad on the wall... I'll take the guy with the wall. I'll take the guy with the economy," says Trump.

There was also protesters waiting outside the Convention Center at the end of the rally.

Trump is leading the South Carolina Primary polls followed by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

"Ted Cruz who lies more than any human being I have ever seen,"  said Trump during his speech.

Although the polls show Trump is leading some of his supporters say they won't get too comfortable with the polls until they see the final primary results.

"I think we still don't need to take it for granted, everybody get out their vote for him, make his numbers huge when he goes to the next states," says supporter Kim Hopkins.
