We're getting new Fox News polls in this morning from South Carolina, showing Donald Trump with a 13-point lead just 48 hours before the crucial primary. 

The survey of likely Republican primary voters, conducted Feb. 15-17, found Trump at 32% support, Ted Cruz at 19%, Marco Rubio at 15%, Ben Carson and Jeb Bush tied at 9% and John Kasich at 6%.

About one-quarter of those surveyed said they could still change their mind.

Overall, 9% listed Trump as their second choice, compared to 16% for Cruz and 17% for Rubio.
