More good news for Donald Trump: He is running away with the South Carolina primary, according to a new CBS News poll, that puts the business mogul at a commanding 42% lead. Ted Cruz is in a distant second place with 20%, buoyed by conservatives and evangelicals, with Marco Rubio polling at 15%, and John Kasich seeing a post-New Hampshire boost of 9%—a boost that's somewhat muted by his lacking popularity with the state's evangelicals. Jeb Bush and Ben Carson are both polling at 6%. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is leading Bernie Sanders by a margin of 59% to 40%. (More Donald Trump stories.)
