Donald J. Trump won the South Carolina Republican primary on Saturday, according to The Associated Press, solidifying his status as the improbable leader of the field after claiming two of the first three nominating contests.

Mr. Trump’s victory, following his double-digit win in the New Hampshire primary, puts him in a strong position heading into future nominating contests, particularly those on March 1, when a number of Southern states will vote.

This is the poll trend. Right now the vote is Trump 34, Cruz 21, Rubio 21. Real time results here.
