Donald Trump maintains lead in South Carolina finds CBS News poll

Donald Trump maintains lead in South Carolina finds CBS News poll

He singled out George W. Bush and Ted Cruz, who once advocated for Robert's confirmation, for blame, saying they put "the wrong guy in there... so you never really know".

In a March 2015 Washington Post-ABC News poll, fewer than half of Republicans (43 percent) approved "strongly" of Bush's presidency, while about as many said they approved "somewhat".

Kasich, who saw a bounce in support due to his No. 2 finish in the New Hampshire primary, will likely battle for third place in the February 20 Republican contest, CBS News reported. If you want to get a replacement for justice Scalia, nominate a conservative - nominate someone can win.

"They lied, they said there were weapons of mass destruction, and there were none", Mr. Trump said.

"They helped create him, they helped make him President", said Gidley, who advised Mike Huckabee for president before he left the race. Jeb Bush responded immediately and other candidates were in support. Donald Trump slammed Jeb Bush for supporting his brother - the former president George Bush, and the invasion of Iraq.

"How did he keep us safe when the World Trade Center, excuse me, I lost hundreds of friends". Tim Scott and Rep. Gowdy, both of SC. "I am sick and exhausted of him going after my family. That was an extreme and radical position and Trump on the debate stage said, well, he thinks George W. Bush made a mistake in Iraq". "And I am proud of what he did. George W. Bush's 2005 nomination of Harriet Miers was scuttled by conservatives who believed her past record demonstrated a lack of fealty to their principles".

Yet Trump has repeatedly defied predictions that his comments might threaten his perch atop the field.

Trump wasn't the only person to hear it from the crowd Saturday night.

"We're not gonna give up the U.S. Supreme Court for a generation by allowing Barack Obama to make one more liberal appointee", Cruz said. And the effect is, if either Hillary or Bernie or Donald Trump is the president, we will see the Second Amendment written out of the constitution.

Cruz's case was that Trump is still only a recent convert to conservatism - at best.

Cruz was the initial aggressor, saying Rubio had backed a "massive amnesty plan" in the Senate for those living in the country illegally.

During the Republican presidential debate Saturday, and in campaign advertisements released over the weekend, Cruz sought to portray Trump as unreliable on the issues of abortion and gun rights. Rubio said his idea would leave enough revenue in the federal budget to triple the child tax credit for working families with children. He asserted that the junior senator from Florida said so in an interview on Univision, the Spanish-language television network.

As Cruz tried to protest in Spanish, Rubio turned things up to 11. Marco Rubio comes in second (22 percent), beating out Ted Cruz (14 percent) by eight points.

Dr. Ben Carson doesn't like arguing with his opponents, but he sure loves whining about the moderators.

"I can say this", he continued, "it may not have been impeachable because it was a mistake". By contrast, 41 percent of Republicans say Ronald Reagan was "one of the greatest" presidents, and 28 percent said he was a "very good" president.

Kasich: "Stop fighting, all of you! I don't think that's happened very much".
