Trump wins South Carolina Republican primary

Donald Trump has won the South Carolina Republican primary, a second-straight victory for the billionaire real estate mogul after his first-place finish in New Hampshire.
    
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio are in close race for second.
    
Donald Trump thanked his supporters for delivering his commanding first-place finish in South Carolina on Saturday.
    
And he’s predicted big wins in the races ahead. He told a cheering crowd of supporters at his victory party:  "Folks, let’s go, let’s have a big win in Nevada…Let’s put this thing away," He closed with his campaign slogan saying "And let’s make America great again."
    
Exit polls taken in South Carolina found that about three-quarters of Republican voters support a temporary ban on Muslims who are not American citizens from entering the United States. That’s one of Trump’s signature proposals.
    
A majority of voters looking for an outsider candidate supported Trump, providing a boost to the first-time candidate for office.
